Douglas DC-3/C-47 Dakota oil cooler 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.

As cool as it gets

We took an air scoop for the oil cooler of a Dakota engine and turned it into this remarkable light. The paint was removed and the surface was polished. The dents, scratches and repairs are a testament to rich history of the item. A smart light bulb was added, enabling you to choose the colour the environment or setting calls for.
