Default DC-3 to fly over Sydney Harbour on Thursday

DC-3 to fly over Sydney Harbour on Thursday

HARS Aviation Museum is set to fly its Douglas C-47/DC-3 over Sydney Harbour on Thursday to mark 85 years since the aircraft’s first flight.

A larger version of the DC-1 and DC-2, the DC-3’s first flight took place on 17 December 1935. The C-47, meanwhile, is the military variant that played a major role during World War II.

In Australia, many airlines operated the model including Qantas, Australian National Airlines (later Ansett ANA) and Trans Australian Airlines.

The DC-3 plans to depart Shellharbour Airport and fly north to Long Reef on the Northern Beaches before conducting low-level flyovers of Sydney Harbour. It will then fly directly to Sydney Airport and proceed back to the coast adjacent to Cronulla, before returning home to Shellharbour Airport.

The estimated itinerary (arrival, location, departure) is below:

– Shellharbour (YSHL) 11:45
12:15 Long Reef (LRF) 12:15
12:20 Harbour Bridge (HBB) 12:35
12:40 Sydney (YSSY) 12:40
12:45 Abeam Cronulla (JIBN) 12:50
13:10 Shellharbour (YSHL) –

HARS said of the history of the DC-3: “The first flight of the DC-3, a larger version of the DC-1 and DC-2, took place on 17 December 1935, 85 years to the day.
