What was it like flying in the 1940s? Find out inside the world's best restored 21-passenger Douglas DC-3, Ship 41! Ship 41 was one of Delta's first DC-3 airplanes used for passenger service, flying its first flight in January 1941. 


On dedicated DC-3 tour days we offer a free interior guided tour with normal paid admission to the Museum. Tours begin promptly at 1 pm, and last about 45 minutes. Reservations are not accepted.

This tour requires participants to wear gloves and shoe covers, which will be provided. Tour is not handicap accessible. 


Proceeds from Museum events benefit the Museum, fostering our mission to celebrate the history and heritage of Delta and its family of more than 40 airlines, the history of aviation and the future of flight.
