Douglas DST, DC-3,C-47, Dakota… et al: Simply The Best.

80 years old today (Dec 17, 1935) and as incombustible as always. One of the very few that can be boast there was a before and an after them. A truly revolutionary aircraft -with Boeing 247 permission-, the DC-3 made commercial aviation profitable. Period.

Hard to choose a photo for this important day (Wrights’ day also). In the end as “the only replacement for a DC-3 is another DC-3” I just share with you this C-47 Skytrain’s classic 3-view.  Iconic from any angle.
