First flight for the A DC-3 plane

March 5, 2013, 03:35 pm

A new aircraft was recently introduced, joining the DC-3 collection of military and civilian aircrafts from 1927 to 1957 called the A DC-3.

The Historic Flight Foundation, which is an aviation museum with its flying operations based at Paine Field in the Everett area of Mukilteo, Washington, recently had the first flight of the aircraft.

More than 16,000 of the airliners were manufactured over the years and more than 400 are still in commercial service, known as being one of the most recognizable propeller-driven aircrafts in history.

After being restored, the Historic Flight Foundation's DC-3 has luxurious features that include a VIP interior with classic Pan American Airways livery. The aircraft was manufactured in Long Beach, California by Douglas Aircraft Company, but was later delivered to China National Aviation Corporation in August of 1944.

Pilots who will be behind the controls of this aircraft should be sure to secure pilot insurance so they can prepare for any unexpected future circumstances that might call for them to have a backup plan to support themselves or their families.
