Crossing the Atlantic Ocean
In an age when trans-Atlantic flights take place hundreds of times each day, its good to see a throwback to an era when that wasn’t quite so common. In this video, we join a couple of pilots as they set off to traverse the Atlantic in a 1930s era Douglas DC-3 aircraft.
Back then, such a flight was still a big adventure, and the spirit of that is found here as well. In order to make the crossing, the plane had to fly to northern Canada, then on to Greenland, before completing the flight. The project was undertaken to celebrate the 75th anniversary of D-Day, but it stands on its own for being a pretty outstanding journey.
