Hello Isabel, thank you for your nice comment and greetings.
The description seems to be interesting.
Is the DC3 crashed in Ushuaia, perhaps in connection with the Falklands war? Is this a British or U.S. machine?
I wish you and your family a blessed night, Günter
Here, its interesting story. Good night and all the best. Isabel...
The DC3 was the first aircraft in history equipped with autopilot. Bought used and reconditioned in the U.S., were brought in flight between the years 1946/1948.
In Argentina, were used for all kinds of tasks. Have gone to the South Pole and have made thousands of flights health. Also, almost all were used by local airlines. Most arrived after 1945 to: ZONDA, Aeroposta and ALFA, which in 1949 was inherited by Aerolineas Argentinas. Been in commercial service until 1968, when they were transferred to the Air Force.
Ushuaia rests in the last DC-3 of the Naval Aviation. It is the "5 CABO DE HORNOS TANGO 22" restored and located in the Aeroclub Ushuaia. This aircraft arrived at the South Pole under the command of then Captain of Hermes Quijada Aviation Naval Argentina.
