On the 50th anniversary of the DC-3, NOVA reported
Provincetown-Boston Airways had one in service & that
airframe had 10.4 *years* of logged airtime..

That was 10+ years ago; Anyone know where that aircraft is now?

In Sandusky OH, Island Airlines flew a pair of Ford Trimotors
through the 60's, but eventually pronged both of them. I always
regretted never taking a trip on them.
