Aircraft Information

Aircraft Type: Douglas C-49G-DO (DC-3)
Serial Number: 1997
Built In: 1937 at SMO/KSMO (Santa Monica, CA – Clover Field)
Registration #: N136PB

Currently preserved: N136PB is one of, if not the highest time aircraft in the world with, as of 2007, over 91,0000 hours of flight operations. By 2010 she was with the Pearson Air Museum as N18121 and wore a highly polished Eastern Airways style livery with ‘The Great Silver Fleet’ titles. The scheme and titles have since been removed and replaced by US ‘stars and bars’. As such, she was one of several ‘Daks’ to return to Europe from the United States to commemorate the 75th Anniversary of D-Day and the 70th Anniversary of the Berlin Airlift.
