Produced by the USA, the C-47 was based on the civilian version of Douglas DC-3. It acted in principle on all fronts of World War II and was operated long after the war ended. It was used for landing paratroopers as during the D-Day Invasion of Normandy. It also functioned towing gliders, as well as for transporting supplies, ammunition and evacuating the wounded.
