City of Clintonville, DC-3
I recently took a trip over to Sheboygan County airport to visit the Aviation Heritage Center of Wisconsin museum to check on the status of the DC-3 airplane that the city of Clintonville paid naming rights for. I wanted to know if the plane was going to visit Clintonville, as promised, and when. To make a long story short, yes it will be flying to Clintonville in the future, but the date is still undetermined. Although the plane is flyable, it was damaged last year in a windstorm and needs some repair to a wing tip (see photo). N33632, its designated number, still needs to have the original 1954 paint scheme added to the bare aluminum body.
DC-3, N33632, was built in 1941 and is only one of four planes still in existence that flew for North Central Airlines. Two of the others are privately owned and the third is in Florida being salvaged for parts. N33632 served North Central as a passenger plane from 1954-1958 and then served as a cargo plane until 1968 when North Central sold it. After is passed through several owners it came to rest in a California desert until AHCW bought it in 2016.
N33632, now called the “City of Clintonville,” went through three years of restoration before it was able to fly back to Wisconsin, making stops in Arizona, New Mexico and Kansas before arriving at its permanent home in Sheboygan Falls. This 12,500-pound aircraft is over 80 years old and could carry 30 passenger each flight. N33632 was the first DC-3 to receive the red feather motif paint scheme when it was purchased from Eastern Airlines in 1953.
North Central was founded in Clintonville as Wisconsin Central in 1944 by the FWD Corp. In 1952 the name changed to North Central as it grew in area served. Through corporate mergers North Central became Republic in 1979, Northwest in 1986 and then Delta in 2010. North central carried over 6 million passengers in its 35-year history.
Looking forward to the day it comes back to Clintonville for a day. In the meantime, take the short trip over to Sheboygan County Airport and visit the Aviation Heritage Center to see it up close.
Be an advocate for history. Share your stories and save those artifacts.
