Just in time for the 75th anniversary of D-Day and the 70th anniversary of the Berlin Airlift the DC-3 Story is ready to air.
The DC-3 Story - The Plane That Changed the World
With more than 16,000 built, the DC-3 became the world’s most successful aircraft and legend in several wars. During both World Wars, the military version of the DC-3 became a crucial factor for success. But by now the Basler factory in Oshkosh near Chicago seems to be an airplane boneyard. Several DC-3 aircrafts seem to be lying about in disrepair. But through 45,000 hours of work, 80 employees hammer, screw, and drill a wreck into a modern aircraft. The DC3 is the only aircraft in the world that can be fully rejuvenated after 80 years of service and then continue to fly for another 50 years or more.
