On September 14, 2007, the Flagship Detroit Foundation’s lovingly restored American Airlines DC-3 NC17334 made a first-time visit to Vancouver International Airport as part of an America Airlines sponsored tour of their west coast stations.
NC17334 was delivered new to American Airlines in March, 1937. In 1947, it was sold to the Bank of Mexico, and a string of owners followed until it was restored by the Foundation in 2005. With 45,000 hours to her credit, NC17334 will fly for many more years!
This pristine DC-3 operated two pleasure flights up the scenic BC coast via Howe Sound, which culminated in a flypast over North Vancouver, the city center, and the airport.
Airline videographer Henry Tenby captured this amazing visit on video, and this DVD presents spectacular footage from the flight-deck, cabin and exterior. We’re in the cockpit for both landing and take-off, and the exterior views of the engines sputtering to life as well as views of taxi, take-off and landing make this a must-have DVD for hard-core propliner fans!
