Douglas DC-3

Since we have the Dash-8 why don’t we get it’s granddaddy in game. The DC-3 is still getting quite a bit of use in Africa and South America plus it was almost literally used by every airline and air force in the 40s and 50s. The tail dragger would be a lot of fun to fly and capable on landing pretty much anywhere you want.

One flies cargo from Long Beach to Catalina. That would be a nice flight.

I’ve figured how to land the Spitfire, so now I want another tail dragger.

Yeah they are still pretty popular and I would have taken a ride on a Pan Am one of it wasn’t raining. Would have had to wait for several hours in a hard cold rain.

I posted a pic of it in a closed topic but a company uses it to take people to camps for fishing and hunting and rafting and stuff like that in the summer. The company mainly flies 3 of them and another company uses them for freighters called dessert air

I like other type of tail draggers.

That’s understandable. With the Super D being an aerobatic aircraft it can’t be for everyone.

True I do really enjoy flying the Decathlon but it’s not as historically significant as the DC-3. Also it’s not a passenger or cargo aircraft .

Aerobatic aircraft aren’t my cup of tea, I like warbirds and transports more.
