Although most of the airplanes of the DC-3 series were built in 1940s, today, almost 80 years after, some of them still continue to fly in a daily service, traversing the endless savannas and jungles in the in southeastern Colombia. Transporting people, groceries, livestock, or even small vehicles, a legendary American airplane is sometimes the only connection between remote jungle villages and the rest of the world. The DC-3 pilots praise the airplane for its simplicity, reliability and for a rugged construction that allows it to land/take off on short unpaved airstrips in the jungle. However, due to the raising aviation standards in Colombia, every year there are less DC-3 airliners in active service. | usage worldwide
