This is the oldest surviving DC-3. She was the sixth DC-3 off the line and was delivered to American Airlines on July 12, 1936 as a Douglas Sleeper Transport (DST). Academy Airlines bought her in 1970 and used her as a freighter for a number of years. She is still registered to Academy and apparenty they have turned down a number of sizable offers for this historic aircraft.
