> How about Lost Horizon? 
I think Lost Horizon (1937) featured a DC-2, at least in the desert 
refueling scene.

I like the sepia picture, Jim.  My first airline flight was on a North 
Central Airlines DC-3 from Milwaukee to Stevens Point, Wisconsin in 1963.
I also enjoyed a hop in a Ford Trimotor in 1975.  I've always been an 
aviation buff.  There is a building a block from my house that I believe was 
the factory for the Hamilton Metalplane, which went on to become 
Hamilton-Standard.  And the first U.S. airliner, the Lawson, was built in 
Milwaukee in 1919.  I'm lucky in that the library at my university houses 
the George Hardie aviation collection, which I love to browse.
