Because of its lasting impact on the airline industry and extensive use in World War II, the Douglas DC-3 — known as the C-47 Skytain in military service, whose speed and range revolutionized air transport in the 1930s and 1940s — was one of the most significant aircraft ever made. It also saw wide service after the war.
