How the Douglas DC-3 changed the world is the topic of the Tuesday, Jan. 20, Aviation Historical Society meeting. Following a video, Jim Geary will moderate a discussion by pilots and passengers who also knew the plane as the C-47 or Gooney Bird. From game changing 1930s airliner, WWII workhorse, to Vietnam gunship, the reliable, efficient plane did — and still does — perform remarkably.
The program begins at 10:30 a.m. at the Macon County Airport near Franklin. There is no charge and the public is welcome.
