Celebrating the 75th Anniversary of the Douglas DC-3

Courtesy Aircraft had the opportunity to participate and several activities celebrating the 75th Anniversary of the DC-3. Our very own N1944H “Spirit of Alaska” flew to Whiteside Airport in Sterling, IL for the gathering of over 32 DC-3s and C-47s. We couldn’t ask for better weather or a greater turn out!

The following day, it was off to AirVenture in Oshkosh! N1944H participated in the formation flight over the airport on opening day!

Then, a DC-3 Party at Basler Turbo Conversions with all participating DC-3 Crews! Food, drinks and their impressive facilities were open for viewing. We all had a great time- Thank you for your hospitality Basler!

On Thursday, our DC-3 was able to participate in the AirVenture Airshow!
