Textures only for the default Douglas DC3 in Delta Airlines livery, circa 1940. The plane pictured is "Ship 41". It was the first DC-3 delivered to Delta and is now totally restored, as it appeared on the day it was delivered. Base metal textures are by M. Beaumont, airline livery textures are by Dale DeLuca.

I should point out that this repaint is not totally accurate. The default DC3 does not have both right and left wing bmps nor does it have both right and left side rudder bmps therefore it is not possible to add serial numbers or airline logo on the wings or rudder. The livery is accurate in other respects. I hope you enjoy my repaint.

description=Delta's most prized and important acquisition is 'Ship 41', a Douglas DC-3 Dakota, NC28341. The aircraft was originally delivered to Delta in December 1940 and was the first DC-3 to be used by the airline on commercial services. After passing from Delta's ownership it had a variety of owners until it was re-discovered in Puerto Rico by retired Delta staff in a very sorry state. The aircraft was now registered N29PR and had been flying with Air Puerto Rico. The aircraft was bought in 1993 by Delta and the hulk flown back to Atlanta, Georgia, for total restoration.
