Details

This pack contains a single Douglas C-47 Skytrain or Dakota. Propellers are not included.

The C-47, called the Skytrain by the Americans and Dakota by the British, was an American built transport plane. It was developed from the civilian D3 passenger plane. Used as a supply plane, especially in the Pacific, where it enabled the Guadalcanal campaign to be fought and as a paratrooper transport plane along with glider puller. Not the most glamorous aircraft of the war but an essential one for victory. The C-47 was also used in the Berlin airlift and Vietnam war.
