Dakota Norway is a Norwegian nonprofit foundation, which operates and owns Norway's only Douglas C-47 Skytrain, a military version of the Douglas DC-3 based at Sandefjord Airport in Vestfold County. It is Norway's only flying veteran passenger aircraft.
The cost for this option is USD 100 per person. Flying is dependent on sufficient number of participants, weather etc. We have the aircraft booked exclusively by CBX Norway but we have limited number of tickets available and they are offered on a ‘first come, first served’ basis.The plane was taken out of operation on in 1983 after a total flight time of 3,215 hours.
