Last items in stock

Volume Seven covers the Douglas C-47, including numerous derivatives such as the C-53, R4D, and DC-3. This was the most universal aircraft type to appear in the South Pacific and was deployed from day one to the cessation of hostilities. It was utilised by every Allied military organisation including eighteen Fifth and Thirteenth Air Force USAAF squadrons, and also by the USN, USMC, RAAF, RNZAF, RAF, and Dutch Air Force.

This volume illustrates the development of unit markings from the first commandeered DC-3 airliners in Australia through to the RNZAF C-47s used in the last days of the Pacific War in the Solomons. The profiles are accompanied by unit histories and photos. A wide range of reference material has been consulted including photos, color movies, official records, diaries, and information from wreck sites. Comprehensive coverage of nose art is provided.

The author, Michael Claringbould, is world-renown for his expertise on the Pacific air war. Never before have such meticulous color profiles of the C-47 series been illustrated with such detailed and accurate markings.
