The Douglas DC-3 is a fixed-wing propeller-driven airliner. Its cruise speed (207 mph or 333 km/h) and range (1,500 ml or 2,400 km) revolutionized air transport in the 1930s and 1940s. Its lasting effect on the airline industry and World War II makes it one of the most significant transport aircraft ever made. Join us on one of our tours in the DC3 to King Island and/or Swann Hill or hire out the aircraft for your private needs, business or pleasure.
A great way for individual, couples and corporate groups to experience the delights of King Island, south of Victoria in Bass Strait, which is a mecca for foodies. What better way to get to everything this iconic island has on offer then departing from Essendon Airport within easy reach of the Melbourne CBD and also Tullamarine Airport.
