Impressive visitor at Multiflight; a Douglas (Basler) BT-67 Turbo-67 (DC-3)
Multiflight was delighted to welcome a Douglas (Basler) BT-67 Turbo-67 (DC-3) aircraft travelling from Papua New Guinea to Canada.
The aircraft arrived here yesterday (Sunday) and left today (Monday).
It’s the first time Multiflight has welcomed the CGG aircraft, which is used for providing geophysical information and services to oil and gas companies, but the crew said they enjoyed the welcome and service so much that it will definitely not be the last.
Our Executive Handling team received an email from the crew to say a big thank you for looking after them so well.
The aircraft type revolutionised air transport in the 1930s and 1940s; its lasting impact on the airline industry and World War II makes it one of the most significant transport aircraft ever made.
It 2013 it was said that approximately 2,000 DC-3s and military derivatives were still in service; a real testament to the durability of the design.
The aircraft visiting Multiflight left us to go to Canada for checks, before flying to Alaska. It has flown all around the world.
You can enjoy these pictures of the aircraft taken during its visit to Multiflight at Leeds Bradford Airport.
