Douglas DC-1, DC-2, DC-3 - VOL.3 75th Anniversary, by Jennifer Gradidge
Nobody has documented the iconic DC-3 in greater detail or accuracy than Air-Britain. We now elaborate on the two landmark volumes published in 2005, The DC-1, 2, 3, The First Seventy Years and reveal thousands of additional details from all over the world.
Volume 3 includes a treasure trove of articles, including Andrew Dixon (who flew South Coast Airways’ G-DAKK) on flying the type; Jennifer Gradidge on the DC-3 in the Antarctic; Robert J Ruffle on the Lisunov Li-2 in worldwide service, including many rare photos; Karl Hayes on Ryan Field C-47s and Peter Marson on Transair and the Dakmaster. This new volume includes extensive details of modifications and conversions to the basic airframe.
Illustrated with over 250 black & white photographs from the 1930s to the present of a wide range of aircraft, most published for the first time, plus memorabilia, Volume 3 has a complete registration/serial-constructor’s number cross-reference to all the new and updated information.
A must for all fans of this incredible aeroplane. 272 pages + 32 pages in colour.
