Douglas DC-3 - hands down the best all purpose Gangster aircraft ever. Damned hard to find a good one these days... The ones you'll find someplace in a third world country are nothing more than flying junkers that are running on their last hope and a prayer.
The DC-3 was a twin-engine metal monoplane, developed as a larger, improved 14 bed sleeper version of the Douglas DC-2. It had many exceptional qualities compared to previous aircraft. It was fast, had a good range and could operate from short runways. Its construction was all-metal. It was reliable, easy to maintain and carried passengers in greater comfort.
