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 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 aircraft Raisin Bomber. Nowadays the airliner carries the nickname "Grand Old Lady“. This greatly restored DC-3 carries the original Swissair livery of the late 30s. The dull roar of the Pratt & Whitney radial engines is tirelessly announcing the amazing success story of the Douglas DC-3.
