Palm Springs - The Palm Springs Air Museum Celebrates 75 years of the DC-3 / C-47 on Saturday November 5, 2011 at 1:00 PM.
The Douglas DC-3 is an American fixed-wing propeller-driven aircraft whose speed and range revolutionized air transport in the 1930s and 1940s. Its lasting impact on the airline industry, World War II, Korea and Vietnam makes it one of the most significant transport aircraft ever made. Many DC-3's are still used in all parts of the world today. We celebrate the 75th birthday of this vaunted aircraft by inviting those who flew this plane to share some of its history.
Visitors will be able to tour inside the C-47.
