C-47 Transport (Douglas 1941)

The C-47, perhaps the best known military transport of all time, was neither the largest, the fastest, nor the most beautiful but it must have been the best loved and hardest worked. More than 10,000 of the C-47s -- a beefed-up, military version of the DC-3 --served the U.S. Army Air Forces, the U.S. Navy and our allies.
