The DC-3 in this single event, with all its variants,
has rippled through the Aviation World for over 60 years.
Competing designers have proclaimed the demise of this valiant workhorse,
with each new aluminum show plane, but to no avail.

The DC-3/C-47/R4D/Dakota and its many other variants,
has touched the lives of people
from every country in the World, and from Pole to Pole.
The DC-3 was designed to
do the work of the world then -- and the DC-3 is still at it!

A new group of DC-3 fans are now retracing the path of history,
and the DC-3/C-47/R4D/Dakota is there to greet them,
and share a "Spirit of Aviation"
that has crossed both generational and financial barriers
to capture the heart of those that love aviation
as a way of life, and not simply a occupation!

    Good shot of the old Gooney Bird. Looks out of place with that row of BAE Hawks in the background.
