Perhaps no other plane in aviation represents courage more than the Douglas Skytrain. On D-Day, more than 800 of them braved dangerous conditions to drop 25,000 paratroopers behind enemy lines and into some of the hardest fighting of World War II.
The Skytrain, also called the C-47, was the militarized version of the famous DC-3 airliner. This handcrafted 1:72-scale mahogany model replicates what one looked like on D-Day, complete with wing and fuselage stripes.
Set this model on your desk or shelf and show your appreciation for the brave Americans who liberated the world.
