The Douglas DC-3 is a low-wing twin-engine developed by US company Douglas Aircraft Company in the thirties and produced until the forties. Intended to commercial traffic on short and medium haul routes it was produced a licensed version in the Soviet Union, the Lisunov Li-2, and, as a result of the outbreak of World War II, it was also derived a military transport version, the C -47 Dakota / Skytrain.
Although it is in service for over seventy years, there are still more than 400 specimens in flying condition and used in various areas of the world, including some conversions that have adopted turboprop engines.
