Description

The Tulsa Air and Space Museum & Planetarium will be hosting the “Flagship Detroit,” a Douglas DC-3 aircraft over Veterans Day weekend, November 10 through 12.  The aircraft is presented by the Flagship Detroit Foundation.  The foundation will be providing open house walkthroughs of the historic aircraft and membership rides.

 

The “Flagship Detroit” is the oldest DC-3 still flying.  Manufactured in 1937, this aircraft was the 21st of the 84 DC-3s built for American Airlines.  It flew with American Airlines from 1937 until it was sold in 1947 to the Bank of Mexico.  After 18 different owners, the “Flagship Detroit” was purchased by the foundation and was restored to its 1937 glory.

 

“Visitors will feel as if they have stepped back in time when the aviation industry began making dreams come true for us all,” says Tonya Blansett, executive director of the Tulsa Air and Museum & Planetarium, “proud to bring this opportunity to experience real history at TASM.”

 

To fly aboard the aircraft, individuals can purchase a Flagship Detroit Foundation membership for $100. Memberships can be purchased in person at the Museum or at www.tulsamuseum.org.
