Douglas was once headquartered at Clover Field, where the many of the approximate 11,000 DC 3’s were built between the 1930s-40s. The DC 3 plane that will be the centerpiece for the “Spirit of Santa Monica” at the Douglas DC 3 Monument, and the new Museum of Flying, was lifted onto the concrete columns on Tuesday, February 10. The plane weighs over 18,000 pounds. A ceremony for the opening of the DC 3 Monument will happen in late March.
