Buffalo Airways DC-3’s

News in from the EAA Hotline…

Ice Pilots: Buffalo Airways
Buffalo Airways still operates a daily scheduled passenger service on DC-3s for residents in Canada's Northwest Territories and is the last airline to do so. The airline plans to bring two of its "3s" to AirVenture this month to help celebrate the big 75th anniversary of the aircraft's first flight. Watch the video

Was your first airplane ride on a DC-3? Were you a pilot or flight attendant on a DC-3? Did you have a military experience on a C-47? If so, please join us for lunch and share your memories and experiences. A DC-3 Reunion lunch is planned for Wednesday, July 28, in the Founders' Wing of the AirVenture Museum, beginning at 11:30 a.m.

EAA is inviting everyone that has a historic connection to the DC-3/C-47 to attend. It will be a time for everyone who is passionate about the DC-3/C-47 to get together and celebrate the legacy of a legendary aircraft. James Douglas, son of Donald W. Douglas Sr, the founder of Douglas Aircraft Co., will be in attendance, as will numerous crews of visiting DC-3s. Timeless Voices of Aviation volunteers will also be on hand to create archival recordings of people's memories.

The lunch is free but space is limited so you must make a reservation either by e-mail to AirVenture Oshkosh Convention Office  or by calling 920-426-6823.

Support EAA …the true spirit of Aviation
