DC-3 Featured on Sporty's 2010 Christmas Ornament

Sporty’s 2010 Crystal Christmas Ornament, the 26th annual edition, features the classic Douglas DC-3. Long a tradition among pilots, Sporty’s Christmas Ornaments are limited editions that will be treasured family keepsakes for years to come.

“The DC-3 is a much-loved airplane – and an important one as well,” says Sporty’s Vice President John Zimmerman. “We think it’s the perfect choice this year, since 2010 marks the 75th anniversary of the DC-3’s first flight.” The DC-3 silhouette is elegantly etched on the ornament, along with the year. Sporty’s Crystal Christmas Ornament comes in an attractive gift box and includes a colorful ribbon for hanging the ornament on your tree.

Pilots can also immortalize their favorite airplane on a custom Christmas ornament. A silhouette of a high wing, low wing, twin or taildragger is etched on an ornament along with up to 20 characters of text such as a name and tail number.

Since these are limited edition ornaments, order now so as not to be disappointed. Sporty’s 2010 Crystal Christmas Ornament [9833-10A] is available for $24.95 and the Custom Christmas Ornament [2015A] is available for $34.95.
