THE FLAGSHIP DETROIT DC-3

The Flagship Detroit was one of American Airlines’ fleet of 84 Douglas DC-3s operated from 1936 to 1947. The Flagship Detroit Foundation located the airplane in Virginia in 2004 and has spent 8 years completing a full restoration to its 1937 condition while sharing this historic aircraft with fans throughout the U.S. and Canada.

A unique aspect of Flagship Detroit is the fact that it is an original American Airlines DC-3 which was never modified externally. It was delivered with Curtiss Wright GR-1820 1000hp radial engines driving Hamilton Standard constant speed full-feathering metal propellers. The aircraft paint colors were bonnet blue and international orange. The DC-3 had a range of 1,300 nautical miles and a 143-knot cruise speed. It carried 21 passengers, a captain, copilot and a stewardess (registered nurse).
