Artist's Description

Douglas DC3 in the sun at Wings Over Illawarra air show at Albion Park, New South Wales, Australia.

This aircraft was built to a 1941 USAAF order by Douglas Aircraft Co. at Santa Monica, CA, as a C-47-DL cargo transport (cn 6021), powered by two Pratt & Whitney R-1830-92 radial engines of 1,200 hp each. It was initially allocated the USAAF serial 41-18660 and taken on charge in November 1942.

It served in the second World War and was converted to civillian use in 1946 where it flew for Trans Australian Airlines (TAA).

At one point it was a display piece, hanging over the car park at Tullamarine’s airport up to the 1980s where it was removed and restored to its present fully operational state.
