Collective Noun for DC3?

Post by adysmith » 18 Oct 2018, 15:29

What do you call a whole lot of DC3s?

We seem to have a whole load of them, which have never flown, scattered around, lots of them in USA.

I will make a start bringing some of the UK Registered ones back to UK bases but do we really need all the foreign reg aircraft?

With this in mind how do I go about creating one off legs to get the aircraft from places where we have no route?

e.g. GAMVB at KGYR eventually to Goose and pick up route CNBP350 but will need a fuel stop in between

We had a small fleet of 10 aircraft that were holding DC-3 registrations so I decided to replace them with actual DC-3's. I setup routes so we can get them home but I have not yet started moving them. I am 3 legs from returning to the UK and then I was going to start, but if you want to start please do, just leave one in the american south west for me.

For anyone pulling dc3s out of Tarbes I've found quite a nice airport for fsx. It also seems to work ok in p3dv4 Just turn AEC off in vector for LFBT if you use it

Collective noun? *-)
Seeing as one of the DC3's names is Gooney Bird, and they are Albatrosses, I think that we are stuck with "a flock of DC3s".
Or on a more aeronautical angle, maybe "a flap of DC3s"
Other more creative contributors could well prove me wrong. :dunno:

If some routes get done I will give youi a hand get them back. Dave set some routes up in the old days and I did bring a couple back. The old Atlantic Ferry routes Gander, Narsasuaq, Keflavik etc. Doing a couple of rallys at the moment so wont be for a month or so.

I think its already there, it goes through Albuquerque, St, Joseph Missouri, Chicago Midway and Montreal before getting to Goose Bay

I can’t see that route, either searching the DC3 routes or any aircraft from KGYR. 😧

It certainly goes from CYUL. That is the furthest start of the route I can find
