Historic DC3 Photos

01 October 2013

ASMS' consultants both crew for Fly DC3. As such, we have a soft spot for the DC3... recently we stumbled across these photos from the National Library, showing the DC3 in days gone by. The first two are taken at Whenuapai Air Force base, and the last three are of Mount Cook Airlines.
