The Ubiquitous DC-3 Found in Google Earth
The DC-3 was first built in 1935, and the first commercial airline, American Airlines, flew it in 1936. Just over 10,000 DC-3s were built, and over 1,000 of them are still flying today. They have been used for the military, commercial airlines, skydiving clubs, and pretty much every other imaginable flying use. They are beloved by many in the aviation world.
In the Google Earth Community, one of the DC-3s biggest fans is someone called "Hill". Hill has been collecting the locations of DC-3s , and documenting them with placemarks. With the help of many other people in his forum thread, they have found over 250 so far. I encourage you to look at his forum thread as he has some background information and links to DC-3 related web sites. One of the best links I looked at was the DC-3 Hangar.
Once you download the GE File above, it is very interesting to double click on the placemarks and witness the location of these planes. Some are just hulks stored off the airport, sometimes with entire forests grown up around them. Others are still on the tarmac, obviously ready to fly. And, the locations are all over the world. The DC-3 is easy to recognize, so it can be fun to look for. This is an admirable collection. Good work Hill!
