The city is to welcome the arrival of a vintage 77 year-old Breitling DC-3 aircraft next Monday as part of the Breitling DC-3 World Tour.
The twin-engine propeller plane – which made its maiden flight in the United States in March 1940 – is to land by the Menzies hangar at Macau International Airport.
The aircraft today is part of an aviation legend and the oldest plane to undertake a world tour. Following its maiden flight in 1940, it was delivered to American Airlines.
Hired out to the army from 1942 to 1944, it was subsequently used by various North American companies as bomber, fighter, flying hospital, paratrooper transport, and sightseeing aircraft among many other roles. 
The plane was bought back in 2008 by pilot Francisco Agullo and a group of friends with Breitling’s support, and then restored. Since then, the aircraft has taken part in many aeronautical shows as well as events held by the brand.
