The Douglas DC-3 Dakota revolutionized 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 World War II, the Dakota 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 centerpiece, this Haynes Manual describes the Dakota's rugged anatomy and examines its operation from the viewpoints of its owners, aircrew, and engineers.

About the Author

Aircraft restoration expert Paul Blackah, MBE of the RAF's Battle of Britain Memorial Flight, is co-author of the Haynes Spitfire, Lancaster, and Messerschmitt Bf109 manuals. The author's wife, Louise Blackah, is also an aircraft enthusiast and has worked with Paul on his other books.

"I found the book fascinating and fun to read, a break from the usual history of military types and their operational careers. It contains everything you could possibly want to know about owning and operating a DC-3, and probably a whole lot more. If you are interested in DC-3's, this is a good book to have. Highly recommended." -"International Plastic Modelers Society"
