In the cockpit

The cockpit of the DC3 was being used as a bird’s nest before the aircraft was recently restored.

The public will have the opportunity to get a closeup look at a piece of history today at an open house of an aircraft that took part in the Second World War.

The DC3 that has spent the last month at the Thunder Bay International Airport will be open for tours from 8:30 a.m. to 12 p.m. today at Thunder Bay Aviation.

“It’s probably the last piston DC3 we’ll see at this airport,” said Jay Caldwell, director of maintenance and manufacturing at Thunder Bay Aviation. “There’s turbine versions of it now but as far as nostalgia goes it will be the last time you’ll get to see one, let alone get to see inside.”
