This DC-3 Airplane vintage wood sign is fantastic airplane décor and pays tribute to the DC-3 Dakota aircraft. The DC-3 was manufactured by Douglas Aircraft and was known as the workhorse of the skies. It revolutionalized commercial air flight in the 1930s and 1940s since it had speed and could take-off and land on relatively short airfields. It was a marvel to air travelers of that day to actually fly across the entire United States from west to east in just over 15 hours with only 3 refueling stops. Douglas ultimately built 607 DC-3 aircraft and some DC-3s are still in use today.
Our DC-3 Dakota sign is completely handcrafted in the U.S.A. on alder and hemlock woods. This classic, rustic sign, with its bold colors, would look ideal hanging in a man cave, den, airplane hanger, or any aviation themed room. The sign gets its rustic look from printing right on top of the distressed wood planks with knots and all, making no two signs alike. The DC-3 Dakota Sign is about 1 inch thick and is available in 2 sizes. The standard size sign measures about 26" by 15" and the large sign measures about 32" x 20". There is a keyhole slot on the back of the sign for easy hanging. This sign may be ordered as shown or with personalization.
