Douglas DC-3/C-47 Dakota carburetor air scoop light – polished

The Douglas DC-3 was developed by Douglas in the 1930s. Over 600 were built before the aircraft was developed into the C-47 Skytrain/Dakota that became famous in World War II where it was put to use on almost all battlefields to resupply men and materials. It changed the way people were transported. After WW II, and even until today, it was used on several (remote) locations in the world as a workhorse moving passengers and goods.

Unique Dakota lights

We took two carburetor air scoops of Douglas DC-3 engines and upcycled them. The scoops were cleaned and polished, after which a smart light bulb was installed. This resulted in two awesome looking lights. Both scoops differ from each other, one has withstood the test of time better than the other. Both have their own character though. It’s up to you to decide which one fits your interior or preferences better.
