Skyfest 2006, Fairchild AFB. This C-53D "Skytrooper" was built in 1943 for the USAAF as 42-68830, and went overseas on deployment. After the war this bird started its civilian career as NC45366. After having flown for several different companies, this aircraft was donated to the Commemorative Air Force in Midland,TX and assigned to the Inland Empire Wing in Riverside,CA. A full restoration of the aircraft began in 2002 and today it is in flying condition, wearing original D-Day colours. (Canon 350D + Sigma 18-125)
