Douglas C-47 Dakota cargo door

Original cargo door of a Douglas DC-3/C-47 Dakota/Skytrain. This door was once attached to one of the many of C-47s that have been in use with the US military.

The first aircraft in the DC-series was first flown in 1933 and adopted by dozens of airlines around the world. But things changed dramatically when World War II broke out and the DC-3 was chosen by the United States Army Air Force in 1941 as the transport plane of choice. The military designation became C-47 and over 10.000 were built for US operations.

Boneyard inmate

The door still carries its original colours, including part of the US military roundel and the text ´HOLD´. This text was added when it ended up in the large aircraft boneyard at Davis Monthan AFB in Arizona. When the aircraft disappeared from the boneyard this part was saved and it is now available for your mancave, restaurant or office.
