Mr. Douglas needs you jumper's support ! Can't Post

"SAVE-A-DC-3" THE MR. DOUGLAS SOCIETY INC. most famous skydive boogie airplane ever is using all volunteers to do the very tedious work at their own expenses, so far. A labor of love.
All but the rudder control surfaces have been redone like new (see attached) with all new control cables.
Two newly reconditioned 1,300 horse powered like new radial engines have been found with new carburetors and all ready for installation. (see attached).

Only thing missing are the oldschool Dropzone supporters' donations. So far only one donation from this page. Do you people here even remember Mr. Douglas because it appears you all have forgotten where you all came from. Begat by MR. DOUGLAS.

Please, let's get behind this tax deductible effort to bring our beloved Mr. Douglas back into the skydiving circles for the new generation of parachutists.
