    The DC-3/C-47 was so well-designed and built that many are still flying today!

    Just a note, Douglas is the make (like Ford); C-47 is the designator and "Sky Train" is the nickname the mfr. gave it. Pilots called it the "Gooney Bird" and the Brits called it "Dakota".

    A few years ago, I actually met a lady who worked in an aircraft manufacturing plant in the war. She was the checkout clerk at a big box store and was wearing a lapel pin of the plane that she helped build. I recognized the pin and asked, "were you Rosie the Riveter"? She smiled and, surprised that I had identified the plane correctly, said that she had helped build them. I got to thank her and tell her that it's not every day that you run into an American hero. It was a good day.
