Beauty Shot! Nice Refurb job.

Wonderful old aircraft. Clearly this one has been upgraded with turboprop engines. I am sure this dramatically improves its performance over the old piston engines. Maintained the radio equipment on the DC3 aircraft for many years in my early days in Papua New Guinea in the mid 60's. At that stage there were virtually no roads in PNG and everything for the highland areas was carried from Madang airport by these old workhorses. I remember one day the two operating airlines had a competition to see who could uplift the most freight in a single day - there was no winner - each airline uplifted 250,000 lbs of cargo. Put this into the perspective that at the time there was no night flying so that this enormous amount of cargo was carried in the 12 daylight hours of the tropical day. Amazing.

Basler BT-67 DC3 conversion, I believe. What a gorgeous aircraft!

Is that Mia or Lidia?

Yes it's a Basler BT-67 conversion. There's a lot more changes to it over the standard DC-3/C-47 than simply bolting on a new set of P&W turbo engines, including a complete airframe overhaul, aerodynamic improvements, structural modifications to the body and wings that increase strength and improve performance, and new systems that improve reliability.

May be.. but for DC3 purists... it's not a DC3..
