Actually a C-47 ... it has an astrodome on top behind the cockpit for astro-navigation and a shortened tail cone for glider towing.

Nice picture ! Thank You for posting.

From my reading on the DC-3, the civil DC-3 production ended in 1942 or early 1943 when military protection of the C-47 started. C-47 produced thru 1945. After the war Boeing produced a updated the DC-3 called the Super DC-3 with less than 10 made. I don't believe I've ever seen a Super DC-3 so if anyone knows of one in a museum, please post location.

If the one in picture was built in 1944 than it's a C-47. Most people today call then a DC-3 when seen at air shows. They are an amazing plane and I have great respect for the people who take the time and money to refurbish these aircraft and fly them to the shows.

I was blessed to be flying in a B-25 when I snapped this shot! A bucket list item for sure!!

A great photograph, pity about the plastic boats.
May they fly for ever. I had the pleasure of working on them many years ago.
Regards to all. Mel.

Same engines as the PBY.

Check out Florida's Opa-locka Executive Airport. It's home to about a dozen large propeller planes, such as Douglas Douglas DC-3s, DC-4s, DC-6s, DC-7s, C-117Ds (Super DC-3), and Convair 440s...Google "Corrosion Corner"...

La première et seule fois que j'ai volé sur un DC-3 c'était en 1959 en tant que cadet de l'air (as an air cadet). Nous avons décollé de la base militaire de Trenton, Ont, Canada pour un vol de 30 minutes environ. J'ai toujours souvenir de ce moment.
What a great airplane!
