Though it looks like a DC-3
Prairie Aviation Museum's beautiful bird
is a civil C-53 in Ozark Airlines livery.

4) Ookay, we'll call it DC-3
if you insist, but that's better than

5) DC-3
I was on a wheeled airline stair ramp
left over from Americal Airlines' 440 days
when I took this picture. Thanks to
Prairie Aviation Museum, Bloomington, IL
for their assistance and help with
these pictures, all taken during
a 1997 visit to SPI.

6) DC-3
Lots of credit goes to PAM & Ozark
for their choice of color schemes:
after they started white topping the fuselage
but before addint the swallow theme.
