#TBT: DC-3 restoration photo gallery
This is the only Delta passenger DC-3 in existence. Carefully restored by team of volunteers and Delta employees from 1995 to 1999 to combine 1940 vintage style with modern avionics, no other DC-3 in the world has been restored with such attention to detail. This was the second delivered DC-3 of Delta's order for five new planes from Douglas Aircraft Co. The first delivered DC-3, Ship 40, named “City of Atlanta,” was being used for pilot training, so Ship 41 became the first DC-3 to carry Delta passengers. It entered scheduled service on Dec. 24, 1940. Click here for the full story from the Delta Flight Museum and here for the complete Flickr gallery of DC-3 Ship 41.
