Hey, Duane
Yes, I remember the DC-3..It operated YIP,TOL,CMH,DAY,CVG and it did end up in SAV. The crews called it "The Vomit Comet". In TOLthe flight crew always ran in to check out our radio operator, Corkie. She was a babe but she finally ended up marrying some guy from the tower. EAL had a Connie that left TOL at the exact time the DC-3 and if Ed Reed was the Capt, he raced the Connie to CMH and he would win if he got the lowest altitude. Needless to say, us guys at TOL worked real hard to get skd (or maybe a couple minutes early) Working for TWA was lots of fun back then.
