Classic 1930/40’s Allied Military Transport / Airliner
The Douglas C-47 Skytrain or Dakota (RAF designation) is a military transport aircraft developed from the civilian Douglas DC-3 airliner. It was used extensively by the Allies during World War II as both a cargo and parachute aircraft. Made most famous for its contribution to the D Day landings and Arnhem.
This is a hugely expensive, all metal, build of the complete cabin area. In addition it has stubby wings attached that can be seen from the numerous side windows. The detail and quality is quite something. Although it will floor sit it was actually designed to go up on a gimbal, the mount of which we still have. We could easily remove the parachute seating and change the interior into a cargo config. Really amazing.

1/3 - Bf108 “F8-CA” of Stab/KG40. Two members of the Luftwaffe decided to desert and stole this aircraft at Châteaudun, taking off at 06.00 on 11 September, 1943, to fly to England. Flying at 3,000 ft, they headed for Selsey Bill, the nearest point on the English coast. https://t.co/qcKkmm84eR4th July 2020
OK, so lets bust the COVID quiet by running up our new B17 engine. Obviously VFR only, and despite the unusual undercarriage arrangement I guess it still qualifies as a taildragger. What could go wrong... #b17 #avgeeks https://t.co/8HkPWuYaYD1st July 2020
Filming on/in/around Airliners. The most common request we receive is that of a production wishing to film inside an airliner. Be that…
