Textures only for the default DC3 in "American Airlines" livery circa 1939. "Flagship Phoenix" was delivered to American Airlines in February 1939. The bare metal textures are by Mark Beaumont and the 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 and the airline logo on the rudder must be in reverse on one side....sorry about that. The livery is accurate in other respects. I hope you enjoy my repaint.

description=="The Douglas DC-3 revolutionized air transportation and airline service during the 1930s and 1940s. It was a luxury airliner that boasted cabin heat and running water in its on-board lavatory. With the right balance of efficiency, range, speed, and payload, the DC-3 was the first aircraft to earn a profit for its owners just by carrying passengers. The hero of early airlines, a handful of DC-3s are still at work today." The plane pictured here is DC3 model 208 A "Flagship Phoenix". It was delivered to American Airlines in February 1939 and remained in service until October 1948 when it was sold to Colonial Airlines, and the to Eastern Air Lines in June 1956. From January 1957 it had a series of owners. The passenger door on this plane was on the starboard side of the plane, not on the port, or right side.
