"I found the book fascinating and fun to read, a break from the usual history of military types and their operational careers. It contains everything you could possibly want to know about owning and operating a DC-3, and probably a whole lot more. If you are interested in DC-3 s, this is a good book to have. Highly recommended." -International Plastic Modelers Society "
