The Gorgeous Gooney

We went through the hangar door, found Dean and introduced ourselves. He gave us the grand tour, and filled us in on the history of the various aircraft.

The DC-3 started life as a C-47, then moved to civilian life like most WWII veterans. Although Piedmont did own the plane at one time, it never flew for them in regular line service.
Stuffed passenger Piedmont must have had good
in flight meals, this passenger
 was stuffed.

 when the floor sloped to the tail.

Instrument panel Mr. Douglas did not deliver this
panel. Since the plane flies
 regularly, instrumentation is
strictly 90's.

After admiring this classic profile, we moved our attention to the rest of the hangar.
