About this title


Of all the airplanes ever built, the DC-3 has far surpassed the others in faithful service, dependability, and achievement. Born in the days of wooden propellers, it is still flying as the jet age passes and the era of space flight begins. Now in it's 8th decade of service, the "Gooney Bird" was the workhorse of the air in World War II, was called up for the Korean War, and again for the fight in Vietnam. It has been a transport, bomber, and even a fighterplane--and also, the authors say, a hospital, living quarters, telephone booth, hamburger stand, washing machine, command post, and lover's lane. "The Grand Old Lady has been shot up, shot down, bent almost beyond recognition, but never obliterated," they add. "Pilots swear at her for her slow lumbering speed and her wallowing in thunderstorms, but they pat her fat belly affectionately when she has brought them safely to the ground." THE LEGENDARY DC-3 is a peerless book about a peerless airplane.

Shipping Terms:

SALES TAX: The AbeBooks checkout system cannot detect when California sales tax must be added to your purchase price. As a bona fide California reseller, if we are shipping to a point within the state of California, we are required to collect state sales tax. After confirming availability, we will instruct AbeBooks to request your approval of the sales tax necessary based on the selling price of your purchase. SHIPPING CHARGES: Please note that about 13.5% of the shipping and handling charge is retained by AbeBooks as a fee levied against the bookseller and not passed along for purchasing postage and packaging supplies. That is much of the reason why the shipping charge is significantly higher than actual postage costs. This is especially true for international shipping where international postal costs are high to begin with. Occasionally (such as when ordering a set of books, it will be necessary for us to ask domestic buyers for some additional shipping funds. In this case, after confirming your book(s) is available, we will ask AbeBooks to request appropriate additional shipping charges. In practice, this is a rare occurrence on domestic orders. See below for international shipping. PACKING: All books will be carefully packed to insure safe arrival. We use either quality shipping boxes or other shipping containers augmented by bubble, paper cushioning, or cardboard chipboard to insure safe delivery in the same condition as book was sent. INTERNATIONAL ORDERS: Our default shipping cost is for shipping in a flat rate global priority envelope, small box, or flat rate bag. If your book is too large or too expensive to ship in these containers we will be asking AbeBooks to request adequate additional funds so we can ship your book safely and securely. All international shipments will be listed as books-merchandise on customs forms with value as actual invoice cost. No exceptions. If you have any concerns, please contact us via e mail prior to placing an order for an accurate shipping quotation.
