A repaint of the famous 'Ship 41' that was originally delivered to Delta in December 1940 and was the first Douglas DC3 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 bought in 1993 by Delta and the hulk flown back to Atlanta for total restoration. By Oren Geva.

FS2004 Default Douglas DC-3 repaint textures only.

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. That is why from the right side some writings are backwards. However, I do feel that this is a better representation of the famous Delta "Ship 41" then other available repaints.
