        I’m a “Kiwi” ie a New Zealander, and was in the R.N.Z.A.F. OVER 40yrs age I was in Radio for a time and I loved flying I have been in C47’S or DC3’s as they are called in NZ and Australia etc . I have been flying in DC3’s both in the Airforce and in Civil life……..what a fantastic aeroplane I don’t think that another aircraft will be built like that, and last as long as the ol’ DC3
