DC3 Take Off

This week we had a refuelling and spectacular take-off from a couple of DC-3 propellor aeroplanes. The Douglas DC-3 is a fantastic piece of historic aircraft which played pivotal roles through 1930s/1940s especially in World War II.

We’ve attached some of the photographs from the take-off below. As you can agree it was an honour to see them flying fit and taking off on the Lydd airport runway, a fantastic opportunity to see a piece of history in action!
