Duggy - Fargo AIr Museum Talking Trail

The Fargo Air Museum - Duggy


The Douglas DC-3, or Duggy, made air travel popular and airline profits possible. It is universally recognized as the greatest airplane of its time, and some would argue that it is the greatest of all time. With over 10,174 produced to serve as military transports during World War II, and other orders for the passenger transporter from over 30 other airlines, the DC-3 led the way in transport that was not only comfortable and reliable, but also profitable.


This particular DC-3 was built in 1939 and served for Australia during WWII and was surplussed in 1945. It then went to Canada and served for their Department of Transporation until 1995.


In 1995, Robert Odegaard and Rob Challans under the direction of Mitch Carley, had SkyHarbour, Canada restore and rechristen the DC-3 as Duggy -  The Smile in the Sky!
