Goodness gracious me! They don't make aircraft like that anymore, which is a great shame. Not many pilots made like that either, these days!!
Had to smile watching the flying spanner, keeping an eye on things.
Apart from a map, I never saw any paperwork. Those were the days. When men were men and women knew it! Not like some of today's real slick button pushers.
The only replacement for a DC 3, is another DC 3. :D

Seen it a while ago, very interesting! Also well worth watching the other 4 episodes! (different subjects though)
It's under 'Risking it All'.
