Tribune clipping on the back, June 12, 1986-- "TREE TO GO. It was called 'Gooney Bird,' the 'Dizzy Three' and sometimes only 'The Three,' but it made the airline business possible when it began flying in 1936. This DC-3, one of the last still in operation, was built in 1944 and was at Oakland International Airport's North Field this week. Its next stop is Hawaii on a round-the-world flight to commemorate The Three's 50th anniversary." Photo is of the DC-3 sitting on the tarmac. The plane is named "The Spirit of Vancouver."
