Classic Aero-TV: Coming Home To Roost -- The 'Last Time' For The DC-3 Community

From 2010: An Extraordinary Gathering That May Truly Be The Last Of Its Kind

What a concept... An historic event, billed as “The Last Time”, was organized to celebrate the 75th anniversary of the DC-3 type aircraft. Designed as an airliner in 1935, the DC-3 was pressed into military service in WWII as the C-47 and served in every theater of the war.

Formerly; the largest gathering of them, in any one place, was at the English airfields in preparation for the D-day invasion of Normandy.

Some of these same crew members once again flew in these magnificent birds gathering at Whiteside Airport (KSQI) in Rock Falls, IL, just a few weeks ago.

The Last Time’s four-day reunion activities were free and open to the public, and general aviation aircraft parking and camping were available as well.

All DC-3 aircraft were parked together, and events included aircraft tours, public rides, free media rides, demonstrations, entertainment and music, extensive hangar flying and storytelling, by all those invited, to share the DC-3 experience.

A mass formation flight launched from Whiteside County Airport on the afternoon of Monday, July 26th, as the aircraft left to attend the annual festivities at Oshkosh.

The sights, the sounds, the memories were poignant and powerful.... join Aero-TV for the first in a series of programs we shot while working among the men and machines of a time gone by....
