Would I be correct in saying that I saw what looked like a DC-3 over Perth today? Does anyone have any info about it if it was?

Hi There,

It is a DC-3 - VH-CWS of Classic Wings, based at Jandakot.

The aircraft initially arrived in Perth on 28 Aug 2006, and started operating charter and scenic flights out of Perth Airport. They then ceased ops on 21 Feb 2007, and VH-CWS was parked at Jandakot.

The company finally got its AOC in August 2008, and made a revenue flight along the coast on 13 Oct 2008.

Here's some pics:
