I flew this plane only once (and for the first time in a DC-3), as a guest in 92, between Amsterdam and Dover .. It was a great experience, indeed! .. nice to remember the lovely noise of those engines. [Captain Vasconcelos, former Varig]

I completed the U.S. Navy's "shipfitter's school" at Norfolk, Va.in June, 1952. Had 72 hours to go home to Cincinnati,( 550 miles), and drive an old Ford back to Norfolk; had to take my very first ride in an airplane to do it......a beautiful old (even then) DC-3, belonging to Piedmont Airlines. ( I have loved airplanes ever since! )
Thanks for posting this beautiful old "bird"!
