The venerable DC-3 lifts off a runway in America's heartland,
heading toward yet another destination. By the beginning of WWII
the U.S. was well covered by a web of airline routes that linked all
major cities. Air travel was becoming an essential part of American
life and DC-3s could be seen arriving and taking off from almost
every city across the country. Over 10,000 DC-3s, and their
military equivalent the C-47, were manufactured. After the war many went back to their original jobs, moving passengers and cargo.
