One of the 'Shiniest' Of The Magnificent Planes From 'The Last Time'
The Last Time was an organization created for the sole purpose of reuniting flying examples of the Douglas DC-3 and the people associated with them, for one last time. The goal of the organization was to celebrate this aircraft and these people. Twenty-six DC-3/C-47 aircraft converged at Rock Falls, Illinois for a weekend long celebration, while over 15,000 guests visited the airport to see these historic airplanes and meet their crews. It was a wonderful reunion where old friends met and new friendships developed. It is unlikely that such a gathering will ever occur again.
