Does it still smell like insecticide inside? It was a mega-crop duster before they restored it, the smell was pretty bad when they first brought it "home".

S&W operated the aircraft until 1972, when it was sold to T.G. Heyward, who used it as a mosquito sprayer in the Hilton Head, South Carolina area. The airplane had a total of 50,949 flying hours when it was retired in 1987 and placed in storage at the Hilton Head Airport.

The Grey Eagles, an organization made up of American Airlines senior and retired pilots, purchased the Flagship Knoxville for exhibit at the American Airlines C.R. Smith Museum in November 1991.

Great looking aircraft! Why is the cabin door on the R/H side? I don't think I've ever seen one configured that way.

For some reason American liked having the cabin door on that side-their DC-2s were the same way. They also had Wright Cyclone engines where most DC-3s were ordered with Pratt & Whitney Twin Wasps. I have a Monogram DC-3 kit in 1/48 with Aftermarket AA decals and an Engines and Things Wright Cyclone conversion but I just havent gotten brave enough to cut up the fuselage. Maybe someday.....
