ASA will soon release a new book to commemorate the 75th anniversary of the first DC-3 flight in December of 1935.
“Together We Fly: Voices From the DC-3” is the story of an aircraft like none other — a true legend that is literally the icon of an industry and one of the most recognized aircraft in history, according to ASA officials. Today, 75 years after her first flight, the DC-3 graces the skies of the 21st century. Crowds still gather to watch a DC-3 land, technicians revel in the sound of her rumbling radial engines, cargo haulers appreciate her ability to stretch to meet impossible demands, and pilots still dream of flying the greatest airplane ever built.
Author Julie Boatman Filucci introduces the reader to the people that helped make the DC-3 seem larger than life and greater than the sum of its parts, company officials said. Filucci is a flight instructor, technical writer, and curriculum developer. She holds an airline transport pilot certificate with a Douglas DC-3 type rating.
The book will be released in the first quarter of 2011. Price: $24.95.
