Detailed Description

We are privileged to offering this truly unique example of the DC-3.

Airframe

Records show S/N 26921 left the US in 1945 with a US military serial number assigned but has spent her entire service life on the Brazilian civil register  (where she still resides today).

"Unique" best describes her current situation and status. The current owner has invested to a remarkable degree in the care and development of this example.

Engines / Mods / Prop

The aircraft has not flown since the installation of a pair of brand new "rebuilt" NEW R-1830-92 engines completed for this project by Precision Engines. 

The current owner developed a build specification for both engines that required new parts (not overhauled.) New Crankshaft, new crankcase's and all new cylinders. The kind of engines that have likely not existed for decades? The engines were supplied by Precision in QEC form with all new accessories, They were shipped to Brazil and installed by a US technical team.

Remarks

This aircraft is currently located at a private complex in Southern Brazil and arrangements can be made to view the aircraft there.

We are expecting more details on her history (and more images of her cabin interior configuration) in the next few days. We will update this listing as more information comes in.

This example is being offered for sale by Aerometal International Inc., an aviation maintenance and management company with extensive experience in providing effective maintenance and full service operational solutions for the DC-3.
