The plane that let commercial air travel take flight
In 1934, flying from New York to Los Angeles took a grueling 25 hours, multiple changes of planes, and as many as 15 stops. Then the DC3 took to the air with speed, economy and comfort that lured thousands of Americans into the air for the first time. Now you can pilot your very own collector's edition of this iconic aircraft. Not a toy (except for dads and granddads), this stamped metal replica from the toy experts at Schylling boasts friction-powered spinning propellers and a striking paint job. Even the packaging is period correct, featuring 1950s-style graphics any plane buff will be proud to add to his collection.
