Buy this deal and you get: • A 30-minute flight in the Southern Cross Douglas C-47 Dakota • Departure and arrival from Colorado Springs Municipal Airport, Rocky Mountain National Airport, or Centennial Airport (check dates and availability) The history of the Southern Cross begins with its construction in 1941 as passenger aircraft 6315 for TWA. Like many aircrafts at the time, the attacks on Pearl Harbor called C-47 6315 into action and its first duty was carrying troops and training paratroopers. After its service with the military, it was again used as a passenger carrier by the likes of Chicago, Southern and Delta airlines, and then privately by the then-president of Mexico. It was refurbished for private use with accommodations such as a wrap-around couch, bathroom, galley, the portrait windows it still has today, plus higher-horsepower engines. However, these luxuries were stripped by a skydiving operator who was looking to lighten the load and who installed even larger engines. It was owned by several other private parties until it fell into the hands of Greatest Generation. Learn more about the Southern Cross from their page on Facebook.
