HB-IRI  Douglas DC-3                                       (c/n  1946)


                                  In 1937 Swissair purchased five new DC-3s from the Fokker licensed production line in Holland.
                                  Initially these aircraft were built from kits supplied by Douglas.  Later machines (like HB-IRI) were
                                  produced from scratch in Europe, with only the engines and instruments being imported.    HB-IRI
                                  was actually Swissair's second DC-3.   After WW II it was exported to the USA, (along with its
                                  stablemate HB-IRA) and wound up with Ozark Airlines as N142D.
