Wanted: your favourite DC-3 photo!
Any member of the DC-3 pedigree is allowed, e.g. DC-3, C-47, C-53, R4D, C-117 and even the BT-67. A jury of Scramble editors will judge the entries and make a selection that will be published on our new website. The three photographers of the highest valued photographs will receive a free one-year subscription to Scramble!
The DC-3 family saga began on 17 December 1935, when prototype X14988 (c/n 1494) made its first flight with pilot Carl A. Cover at the controls. It was registered as NC14988 as soon as its Certificate of Airworthiness was awarded. The airliner type was initially built as the DST (Douglas Sleeper Transport) but later evaluated into the well-known DC-3.
