I am hoping to get a couple answers, my friend and i were in a dispute on about how many DC-3s are still flying, he said 500 or so, or about 1 out of every 4-5 built. I said maybe 150-200, so what is it really? can anyone help out?
life wasn't worth the balance, or the crumpled paper it was written on

I think the article said "flying".
There are a number of DC-3 still in existance, but not "flyable". Mostly museum pieces. There's a book I highly recommend on DC-3 survivors.
It's "Douglas DC-3 Survivors" by Arthur Pearcy.
Aston Publications Ltd....printed in Great Britain.
Actually the book is a two-volume set. Hope this help.
