We recently received the following press release:

DC3The DC-3/Dakota Association® is pleased to announce the reopening of DC3/Dakota History at www.dc3dakotahistory.org

The DC-3 Dakota Association is the oldest (established in 1994 as the DC-3/Dakota Historical Society) and most trusted source for accurate information on the DC3, C47, Dakota, Super DC-3, Soviet Li-2, Japanese L2 D3, and all the variants made by the Douglas Aircraft Company, and the turbines remanufactured by Basler Turbo Conversions and Dodson International.

This new site/blog has more than a dozen videos, and more that 600 identified/captioned photos, most with individual histories, contained in six photo galleries (and growing). In addition we have almost 100 historically accurate stories of the amazing 78 years of this aircraft’s life.

In order to continue to preserve the history of this amazing airplane we welcome contributions in the form of photos and stories.
