The Douglas DC-3 (DC – Douglas Commrcial) is considered by many as the aircraft that revolutionized commercial air travel in the 20th Century. The maiden flight of the DC-3 took place on December 17, 1935, the 32nd anniversary of the Wright Brother’s historic flight at Kitty Hawk. Now airlines were able to be profitable without depending on U.S. Mail subsidies and passengers could now fly transcontinental with just one re-fueling stop. There are many DC-3s still flying 75 years after their maiden flights.

Douglas C-47 Skytrain 43-48608 c/n 14424/25869 was delivered to the USAAF in 1944 arriving too late for the Normandy Invasion but did make drops at the Battle of the Bulge, Arnhem and the Drop on the Rhine. The term Biscuit Bomber comes from Australian infantry referring to their transports re-supplying using cardboard ice cream containers full of straw and food because of a lack of proper containers. 43-48608 went to the French AF, Belgian AF and Israeli AF and eventually ended at the Estrella Warbird Museum in California.
