This is verbatim from my May copy of Fly Past magazine and I think Graham maybe interested in this opportunity smile.

DDA Classic Airlines from the Netherlands will be flying passengers from Cambridge in Douglas DC-3 PH-PBA over the weekend of the Flying Legends airshow at nearby Duxford on July 11 and 12. www.dutchdakota.nl/en/book-flight/

Tacit on the Chinese takeaway lying low by then.

150 Euro for a 30Minute flight represents good value to me.

Oh...thank you for correction! My complete lifetime (almost, I saw this movie first when I was 10 Y) I thought it was a DC3...

But what I know for sure is that my father visited Mallorca first in 1958. That was flying a DC3 with an intermediate stop to refuel in Lyon. He has filmed it with his normal 8 camera:)

As we have some historically interesting films from the time before the Second World War in the family, these were copied on DVD 10 years ago by a state agency for the protection of historical films. To thank us, they also transferred all private films to DVD. I can edit this together and publish it on youtube.
