A new treasure…a photo of Robert C. Chambers standing with our first DC-3 in 1945 while she still looked like the government surplus Army C-47 she had been. And breaking news…Chambers was the DC-3 Chief Pilot with Veterans! Bet you didn’t know that! I didn’t before today. Come see.

Veterans Air Express prepared a Civil Aeronautics Board route application – for authority to engage in permanent, scheduled service, worldwide. The document & accompanying, impressive route map, were saved by John Greenleaf, Sr., a founding member of the 1945 company. He kept a copy among his papers. It’s a revelation of the hopes & intentions of these Vets & their investors.
