C-47 Sky Train (Dakota)
Black Star's tribute to the D-Day airborne. Limited Edition 1-50.
The C-47 Sky Train (‘Dakota’ to the RAF) was derived as a WW2 military transport from the successful Douglas DC-3 airliner of the thirties.
C-47’s can be identified by their cargo door, a shortened tail cone for glider-towing and an astrodome in the roof.
Nicknamed the “Gooney Bird” in the European theatre, the C-47 participated extensively on D-Day acting as a glider tug and dropping more than 50,000 paratroopers in to Normandy
