The Douglas DC-3/C-47
(Also known as 'Dakota' or 'Skytrain') has been the workhorse of the skies since as early as 1935! One of the most reliable aircraft known to man and used for every purpose imaginable! During the 1939-1945 war she was the work horse of the sky’s been used as a troop carrier, carrying 28 troops or 18 casualties on stretchers, including being used as a glider tug and a superb vehicle for dropping paratroopers. It also performed in almost every theatre of war and in peace time was used as a superb passenger aircraft, many of which are still flying commercially today-as this photograph illustrates. (Can’t you just tell I love this superb aircraft. :-) Oh and I do love the shot of the aircraft I think its the colour and the full capture of her.
Regards to you all who look at her,
Alasdair.
