Douglas DC-3 Dakota Manual
An insight into owning, flying and maintaining the revolutionary American transport aircraft
By: Paul Blackah MBE & Louise Blackah
The Douglas DC-3 Dakota revolutionised air transport in the 1930s and 1940s. Because of its lasting impact on the airline industry - and in particular the part it played in the Second World War - the 'Dak' is widely regarded as one of the most significant transport aircraft ever built.
Using the RAF Battle of Britain Memorial Flight's ZA947 as its centrepiece, this Haynes Manual describes the Dakota's rugged anatomy and examines its operation from the viewpoints of its owners, aircrew and engineers.Hardback, 270 x 210mm, 160 pages, 250 colour & 50 b&w illustrations ISBN: 9780857330703
