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 air fields 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.
Cessna has notified approximately 75 workers at its
Independence, KS plant that they will be laid off in 60 days. The
workforce reduction is part of a previously-announced plan put in
place by Cessna in its Citation Mustang program.
