North Central Airlines Douglas DC-3, N28341, parked on the ramp. Painted in North Central's new "Modern Feather" aircraft livery, introduced in 1960, with a stylized feather shape with the aircraft ship number painted inside it and the Herman the Duck logo painted on the tail.
Original negative was purchased by Paul Talbott in June 2014 on Ebay. Delta Flight Museum staff scanned and returned the negative.
This DC-3 was originally purchased from Douglas Aircraft Company by Delta in 1940, and flew as Ship 41 of the Delta fleet. Ship 41 retired from Delta service in April 1958, and was purchased by North Central Airlines, later part of Northwest Airlines. After leaving North Central, Ship 41 flew for many owners in continuous service over the next 35 years. Delta employees, retirees and volunteers restored the DC-3 in the 1990s, and today, Ship 41 is housed at the Delta Flight Museum.
