A Convair 340?
You mean, like this?
Things a freakin' relic! I can't believe there's any left in service.
I've actually flown in DC-3's but that was in the 1960's. I can't believe that aircraft was still flight worthy. Its a museum piece.

Not all of them underwent the turbo upgrade. Both the DC-3 and Convair have a decent record though. Until very recently they were flying a Convair regularly out of Phoenix, and I still occasionally see one picking up cargo there, as well as coming out of El Paso.
