Colombia's DC-3s Article.

Mon Mar 12, 2012 2:42 pm

Hi all,

I heard on a local radio station about a Washington post article on the aging DC-3s that one can still find in the remote regions of Colombia. After a quick search, I found it and here's the link:

I think many of you might be interested.

Cheers

Very interesting indeed! Thank you for posting.

How critical air service is to these remote villages and how uncertain its future!

Never argue with idiots. They will bring you down to their level, and beat you with experience.
