Douglas DC-2, DC-3, C-47 Aircraft Research and Information Sources

 

Click here for the DC-3 Main Page

 


I have collected a number of resources and have links to many on the 'net.
I can help you research an aircraft but on a time-limited basis.

Contact me if I can help you with a pet project; if you have additional links that I can post; or if you have for similar items for sale. Let me caution you that there are errors in most sources, and they move from one to another as people copy each other's info

 
Here's the printed material I have on hand. Links to web sites are below.
  Aircraft   Details
  DC-3 Production List   John & Maureen Woods, Airline Publications, Parts 1 through 7, c/n 1494 through 4996. I'd sure like to have the rest of the set! Done in early 1980's
  DC-3 Production List   L.A.A.S., Vol. 1 - 7, c/n 1954 thrugh 43400, not sure of date

  Joe Baugher, military aircraft   http://users.rcn.com/jeremy.k/serialSearch.html A premier site on military aircraft. Presented by military serial number but often have accompanying manufacturer's c/n. Absolutely incredible. Good search feature, but upper/ lower case is crucial.
  Douglas DC-2   http://www.wimparmentier.nl/produktielijst_dc2.html
  Douglas, from the very beginning   http://www.abcdlist.nl/maind.html Peter ______ list is an wonderful resource showing the various model transitions, registrations and so forth. Take your time to learn how to use it.
  Many aircraft   http://www.rzjets.net/aircraft/
  rzjets is a fantastic site. Move deliberately though, and don't be quick to make assumptions. I use it thorough the search box and often find that more than one aircraft will come up under a given c/n or registration. Learn how to use it, and it will serve you well.
       
  DC-3 Info   http://www.dc3history.org/ Lots of good DC-3 stuff, and they will do research for you for a small fee.
  DC-3 Profile #92, as a PDF   http://www.scribd.com/doc/4662184/Aircraft-Profile-096-Douglas-DC3-pre1942
