New Book Relates Stories of the Legendary DC-3

Newcastle, WA—ASA to debut new book at AirVenture 2011 with author Julie Boatman Filucci and former Cessna CEO, Jack Pelton, who wrote the Foreword to the book.

Together We Fly: Voices From the DC-3 is the story of an aircraft like none other—a true legend, the icon of an industry and one of the most recognized aircraft in history. Today, more than 75 years after her first flight, the DC-3 graces the skies of the 21st century. Crowds still gather to watch a DC-3 land, technicians revel in the sound of her rumbling radial engines, cargo haulers appreciate her ability to stretch to meet impossible demands, and pilots still dream of flying the greatest airplane ever built.

Author Julie Boatman Filucci recounts fascinating stories, introducing the reader to the people that helped make the DC-3 seem larger than life and greater than the sum of its parts. From the DC-3’s early development, through its many historic roles, and into the present, Voices is a human journey of visionaries, engineers, pilots, mechanics, hostesses, and passengers alike. It’s like a flight through time in what might be considered the grandest of time machines. Hardcover with dustjacket, 7-1/4" x 9", 192 pages, with historical pictures throughout. Visit for more information.

Julie Boatman Filucci has devoted her career to the aviation industry, first at Jeppesen Sanderson as a technical writer/editor, and then at the Aircraft Owners and Pilots Association as technical editor for AOPA Pilot magazine. She works for the Cessna Aircraft Company and holds a Flight Instructor certificate and an Airline Transport Pilot certificate with a Douglas DC-3 type rating.

Jack Pelton, former Cessna CEO, is one of General Aviation’s most recognized advocates, and a former Douglas Aircraft Company engineer.

Book signing with Julie Boatman Filucci and Jack Pelton will be at ASA’s booth in Hangar B, #2075, Wednesday, July 27 at 11:00A.M.
