Airplane Pictures from the 60's & 70's

- The Workhorses -


The Douglas DC-3 need no introduction. This classic transport airliner has first flown in 1935 and nearly 13 000 have been built. It was named Dakota or Skytrain, a real workhorse capable of tasks done in tough conditions. Some planes still fly today. The pictures shown here were taken at Dorval International Airport in the mid-60's. DC-3 Nordair CF-WCC
C-46 Nordair
The Curtiss C-46 Commando can be easely mistaken for the DC-3 if your not attentive to some details like the rounded nose and tail. Like the DC-3, some Commandos were still flying at be beginning of the 90's and some may still be flying at the present time.
