The DC3 has earned the epithet “Workhorse of the Skies”. Thousands were produced from the end of WWII into the 1950s by the Douglas Aircraft works....military, civilian, government, private, you name it. Utterly reliable. Even now it’s possible to find them flying from remote airports, landing on the tightest strips. Legendary and nostalgic. Aluminum, riveted propellers, noisy, but also safe and familiar.
