Douglas DC-3

November 1955 - March 1964

With 31 seats, the DC-3 had almost twice the seating capacity of the DeHavilland Heron. The introduction of the DC-3 almost marked the first time stewardesses (now called Cabin Attendants) provided passenger service. Originally introduced during WWII as a military aircraft, there were over 10,000 DC-3 manufactured and in service.
