With wings and rudder amputated, this DC-3 isn't as pretty as DC-3 Delaney that plp posted a few pics back, but it fits right in here in Charlotte County, FL which is home to a large number of WWII vets who are quickly disappearing. This plane landed at our local airport with engine trouble about 22 years ago and never left. It changed owners a couple of times and got beat up pretty bad by hurricane Charley, but it's current owner who is trying to restore it recently learned that it flew as a C-47 with the 82nd Airborne on D-Day and may have also participated in the ill fated operation Market Garden.
