Flew into St Juan Airport in Puerto Rico back in 1978. For a mile or so alongside the runway were cannibalized DC3s. They were still using them for cargo. Tried to find pictures of them but this is the best I can do.

Hi
There appears to be one Dak just North of the eastern end of the southern runway.

DC3 from Buffalo Airlines sometimes fly into Winnipeg, a few times have been on the approach that takes them over where I work.
