I didn’t know that these planes still exists in this world, while the 747 is retiring. 😕 D.C.-3 really is beating it. I hope to see the tourist plane land in Pittsburgh

Thanks for sharing!

I see one fly over my house every now and then, though due to political reasons, it was repainted out of the Chrome and blue into a different livery. I’ll post a pic of it later.

This came to Macau (my city) a few months back as well.


It also visited the Philippines (my home country) before it came here.
