The Legacy of the DC-3

The Legacy of the DC-3

The Legacy of the DC-3
by Henry M. Holden

With a Foreword by Donald W. Douglas, Jr., this book is the most comprehensive and interesting book ever written about the DC-3, the most widely-beloved airplane of all time. It contains dozens of never-before published photos and anecdotes about the airplane that changed the world. It has the most complete history of the development of the DC-3/C-47 ever published and over 200 histories of specific DC-3 aircraft. The Legacy of the DC-3 combines the personalities behind its development, the struggles that shaped this great airplane, and a chronological history of its peacetime and wartime adventures. It includes detailed accounts of DC-3s flying themselves, to monkeys in the cockpit, mail, freight and even other aircraft. The accounts go on. The Gooney Bird, its affectionate wartime sobriquet, was meant to fly, and fly she did — over 100 billion miles with over 700 million passengers. The author has carefully researched (and annotated) a masterpiece, including a roster of every surviving DC-3/C-47 in the United States he could locate, as well as 22 appendices, with one of these including details on all 43 variants produced. The appendices alone are worth the purchase of the book. There has never been another volume on the DC-3 that has accomplished so much, and in a style that all readers can enjoy. The Legacy of the DC-3 brings people and historical perspectives together to provide fascinating reading. You may have other DC-3 books on your shelf, but you need this one to get the full story. One well-known reviewer described the book "as probably the best book on any aviation topic to come out in several years."

365 pgs, SB, 8.5x11, 500 photos and illustrations.
