Description Reviews
The C-47 Skytrain is a military transport based and developed from the DC-3 and was used extensively in world War II. It was manufactured by Douglas Aircraft Company.

The C-47 has proven itself for the success of many Allied campaigns, including Guadalcanal, New Guinea and Burma with its ability to counter the mobility of the light-traveling Japanese army. The C-47s were also used to airlift supplies to the embattled American forces during the Battle of Bastogne. The C-47 became notable for flying The Hump from India into China. From 1946 to 1947, the C-47s saw service with the USAF Strategic Air Command. The C-47 was also used by the Americans during the initial stages of the Berlin Airlift and subsequently, it was replaced by the C-54. The C-47 also played various roles including the AC-47 gunships and the EC-47 for counterintelligence during the Vietnam War. The C-47 was also acquired by the Royal Canadian Air Force for search and rescue operations in 1940-1950. The C-47A is a variant of the C-47 with a 24-volt electrical system and there were 5,254 C-47As built.

The primary users of the C-47 are the U.S. Army Air Force, U.S. Air Force and Royal Air Force.

Given to a WW ll Vet January 7, 2013
Reviewer: C W Bowman from Columbia, SC United States  
Excellent, this C-47 Skytrain was given to a 101st Airborne trooper. He flew behind a c-47 during operation Market Garden in a Glider. He also fought in the Hergun forest and at Bastone.  We were all very happy with the model and will order again in the future.
