C-47 Skytrain Military Transport

Springtime is a great time of year to get outside and visit historical parks and museums. Battleship Memorial Park in Mobile, Alabama is home of the Battleship USS Alabama. There a many other things to see, including over two dozen airplanes, the USS Drum submarine, not to mention the Battleship Alabama itself.

This is a C-47D Skytrain Military Transport sitting proudly at the park.  The C-47D was a modified version of the DC-3, with a reinforced fuselage floor and the addition of a large cargo door.
