Douglas C-47 Dakota wingtip

Original small wingtip of a Douglas DC-3/C-47 Dakota/Skytrain. This wingtip was once attached to the lefthand wing of one of the thousands of DC-3s/C-47s built.

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.

Prepared for display

Since wingtip elements were interchangeable between aircraft we don’t know the history of this specific element. It has been prepared for display though. A hook has been installed on the back side, making it very easy to hang this item on a wall. It´s weight, under 8 kilograms, means that no special measures need to be taken to hang it.

If the current colours are not your cup of tea we could either deliver it the way you do like it or you can change the colours yourself.
