FLAGSHIP DETROIT FOUNDATION
February 28, 2010

This group has fully restored the oldest flying DC-3 aircraft in the the world to its 1937 glory. Through the generosity of the volunteers and donors this historic airplane is now available at air shows throughout the country for viewing and for local rides for Foundation members. The airplane is beautiful and the volunteer pilots and guides are a superb group of vintage airplane fans.
