Is anyone here planning on attending the DC-3 70th Anniversary at HOU this Saturday (December 17)? I heard that they will have the restored Ozark DC-3 amognst others there.

I believe it was cancelled. Check with Michael Bludworth at the IAH Spotters Club

Michael's right, the CO DC-3 will not be making an appearance, but the OZ DC-3 from BMI is scheduled to appear. It is also a great restoration.

I checked earlier today and the event is still planned to take place as scheduled.

I went out to HOU today and sure enough, the Ozark DC-3 from the Prarie Aviation Museum at BMI is there.

Great plane, very nice restoration. We even got to go for a ride in it! I understand that they will be offering rides in it tomorrow, weather permitting.
It was much quieter and smoother than I thought it would be.

Any a.netters planning on showing up?
