A DC-3 Crashes in Antarctica. A Team Rebuilt The Plane In The Harshest Conditions On Earth

This DC-3 (BT-67), a turboprop DC-3 nicknamed Lidia, crashed in 2012.  All the passengers escaped without injury.  However, the aircraft didn’t fare as well.  For almost a year, the damaged craft sat idle under very harsh conditions until a team of engineers made an attempt to rebuilt the aircraft.  They faced extremely cold temperatures, blowing snowstorms and high winds.  It’s a great story that shows the power of dedication, hard work, and hope to rescue a classic aircraft.
