The gleaming structure of Flagship Detroit, one of the remaining DC-3s in mint condition, was on display in December at FIT Aviation. The legendary, innovative aircraft was the superior air liner of its day, giving birth to American Airlines and modern air travel as we know it.
The Flagship Detroit Foundation has been displaying this historic aircraft at various air shows throughout the country to foster a continuing awareness of the significance of this era of American aviation. The aim of the foundation, established in 2004, is to preserve the legacy of one of the most popular aircraft in American Airlines history.
