Additional Description

This Douglas DC-3 C41-A was commissioned by the US Military for use by one of their generals and was appropriately army green at the time. It's extremely similar to the original civilian DC-3 airliner designed in 1935, the US Army C-47, the Navy R4-D, and the British Royal Airforce Dakota that were appropriately modified for a wide range of purposes including executive seating, berthing and a galley for food preparation. Most recently, the aircraft was refinished on the exterior to give it the look you see in the pictures.
