Video: flying a DC-3 across the Atlantic

0

The Douglas DC-3 is one of the most famous airplanes in the history of aviation. From its days as a pioneering airliner to its work as a mainstay of the cargo fleet, this brawny twin has taught many pilots the finer points of flying radial engines and tailwheels. Ride along with Matt Guthmiller in this video as he flies one across the North Atlantic to celebrate the 75th anniversary of D-Day.
