Preserving the Heritage

The Detroit

An Original American Airlines Flagship

The Flagship Detroit Foundation is dedicated to the preservation of the legacy of the DC-3.  The goal of the Foundation is to continue to maintain and operate the Flagship Detroit as a flying tribute to the airplane that made passenger travel a viable form of public transportation and to honor the airline employees, past and present, who have made air travel the safest form of transportation in the world.
