FEATURED Seventy-five years of the DC-3 How do you celebrate the seventy-fifth birthday of an airplane as iconic as the Douglas DC-3? About 30 DC-3s—including many C-47 military transport versions, a C-41 military VIP transport, and a rare DC-2—gathered in Illinois this summer for a reunion dubbed “The Last Time.” One C-47, which had flown in the D-Day invasion of Europe during World War II, flew in from Texas—carrying one of the pilots who flew it during the war, and the family of another pilot.
