About This ContentThe DC-3™ was the aircraft that manufacturers wanted to replace with something better and more modern, but it performed so well that a viable replacement wasn't easy to make - hence the saying, “The only aircraft to replace a DC-3 is another DC-3.”
This fantastic package from Just Flight features the McDonnell Douglas DC-3 in seven liveries, as well as two C-47™ transport aircraft and an RAF Dakota. Also included are the AC-47 gunship, which saw service in the Vietnam War, and a fully flyable Waco CG-4A glider.
The aircraft exteriors and virtual cockpits are all modelled to the highest level of detail, and civilian passenger cabins and military cargo holds are modelled with appropriate animations - suitably dressed stewardesses and crew vehicles, and cargo and troops in the military transports.
