Vintage DC-3 spotting in FL

This DC-3 dates to 1943 and still works for a living. Operated currently by Yesterday’s Wings for flight training, type rating and film (as a star, no less) work — it is also a D-Day veteran.

This DC-3C is a bit older than the one above since its manufacture date is 1942! The livery is in excellent shape and both P&W R-1830 Twin Wasp engines are being looked after.
