I've found 7 images of a C-47A disguised as a Northeast Airlines DC-3 on ADN. The image dates range from 1998 to 2008 and the plane appears to lurk about in the neighborhood of Maine & New Hanpster...ahem. I'm an old NEA-junkie dating back to May 1969 when I took my first airplane flight on an NE B-727-95 (N1633) from KBOS to CYUL. Although I was scared s-less on the outbound flight (I remember holding a blanket over my head for the duration!)Paradoxly, the return flight (DC-9-31 N978NE) hooked me on airliners and I've been an airliner nut ever since.

In fact I became a pilot, FW & RW before even getting my driver's license!

I'm curious as to the owners, purpose, and disposition of this airplane (N33623.) I have an immense collection of Northeast Airlines memorabelia (and practcally every other U.S. "Trunk" and "Local Service" carrier.) As I move along in life, I fear that my wife will toss everything in some dumpster upon my demise.

I have no desire to put my executor through the rigmarole of eBay or whatever. To whom can I bequeath my collection where it will be well taken care of, catalogued, and available to fellow junkies? I've donated quite a bit of Eastern Air Lines memorabelia to the RDU Airport Authority...Eastern having been the first carrier to operate out of the "new" RDU airport ca. 1945. (Frankly, Eastern was always my nemesis what with me being an NE devotee.)

I've read bits and pieces about an NEA-intense organization in something like Augusta or Auburn, Maine.

Any ideas or plans I can make to keep my collection usable to the airliner-nut world after I go to the big penalty box in the sky?

According to the FAA database (and other information on the web) that DC-3 is owned by the Dakota Aviation Museum, in Mason, NH. From what I've read, it sounds like the museum was started by a retired DL captain, who bought this DC-3. I found a business record, with an address, for the museum:


You might try contacting them to see if they would be interested in your materials.
