December 17 is the 117th anniversary of the first airplane flight.  It is also the 85th anniversary of the first flight of the DC3.

I have jumped from a number of different DC3's including Mr. Douglas.  Hopefully I will get to do it again.

I love nostalgia. My favorite DC3 jump was out of a Turbine DC3 into the opening of Suvarnibhumi Airport in Thailand. My least favorites were either of the two that had engine outs below a grand.
