Via Instapundit, I see that Stan Brock (Wild Kindgom) and Remote Area Medical are taking a DC-3 full of supplies to a remote area in Haiti. Good for them.
The DC-3 is still a magnificent aircraft, used today in some parts of the world. Wikipedia says that some 400 of them are still flying, which is remarkable for an aircraft first designed almost 80 years ago. My uncle flew them in the China-Burma-India theater during WWII and was a member of the Hump Pilot's Association until his death.
I can remember as a kid, watching DC-3s fly overhead, either in civil garb or dressed for the military. They were once a common sight in these locales. I'm glad to see that the old bird is still moving around.
