77 years after first flight, the DC-3 touches down in Macau International Airport

Breitling’s DC-3, which first flew in 1940, touched down in Macau International Airport last month as the 16th stop of the ‘Breitling DC-3 Circles the Globe’ world tour.

The twin-engine propeller plane is undertaking a six month world tour across 55 cities in 28 countries, making it the oldest plane to circumnavigate the world in aviation history.

Raymond Lo, Menzies Macau Managing Director, said: “We were delighted to welcome Breitling’s DC-3 to Macau. It is very exciting to be one of the Ground Handlers of choice for such a historic aircraft as it makes this remarkable trip around the world.”

The DC-3 will continue its journey through Asia, stopping in Taiwan and Japan, before crossing the Pacific to the United States this summer.
