Photo Comment

A very nice DC-3 in a freshly painted Eastern Express outfit, but owned and operated by PBA. Sadly it would only fly in these colours for five months, until being put out of service in September 1988. This venerable aircraft is a real oldie, a pre-war DC-3 (delivered to Braniff in 1940) that never saw any military service. It was sold in 1991 and became N28AA.
