Last DC3 Flight

By Dave Vermaak

This historical photograph might still be of interest to survivors of those glorious days!.

It was taken at Salisbury Airport to mark the arrival of the last scheduled DC3 flight on the route Bulawayo - Gwelo - Salisbury on 31.10.1973.

DC3, Last Flight of the DC3

Regrettably I can't identify the engineer on the wing but on terra firma with the crew l. to r. Dave Vermaak ( Sales Manager ) F/O Hugh Travers, A/H Anne Cambell, Capt. Johnny Fox and Ray Weeden ( Commercial Manager ).


Thanks to Dave for sharing his photograph and memories with ORAFs.

My brother sent this
photo to me as I was flying back then. I dont think that the A/H was Jean Dodd. I am sure it was Ann Campbell.
