The rumor is this is the
C-47 that Dwight Eisenhower used for travel in WWII – but we cannot confirm that.
The C-47 was the military version of the Douglas DC-3 and this one is behind a fence at the Santa Monica Airport, almost
ready for the historically correct paint job.
The original Douglas Aircraft plant was here at the Santa Monica Airport, as Rick, the News Guy in Atlanta,
knows. His father worked with Donald Douglas way back when and helped start the
company. So this airplane has come back to its roots.
And if you like old things, there are not many of these left. It seems
to be a Rockola – and it’s a Johnnie’s on Sepulveda.
