The DC-3 is a flying legend and the most successful airliner in aviation history. The legendary aircraft dominated both military and civil aviation since its introduction in 1935. The highly reliable and very robust DC-3 was used on all fronts during the World War II. During the Berlin Blockade, the DC-3 won many children’s heart between blood, sweat and tears when candies were dropped from the airplane. The German children christened the candy-dropping aircrafts Raisin Bomber. Nowadays the legendary aircraft carries the nickname "Grand Old Lady“. This greatly restored DC-3 carries the original Swissair livery of late 1930s. The dull roar of the Pratt & Whitney radial engines is tirelessly announcing the amazing story of the Douglas DC-3.
