The iconic Douglas C-47 Skytrain is a military transport aircraft developed from the civilian Douglas DC-3 airliner that entered service in 1936 and saw extensive service during World War II. This C-47, named Cheeky Charley during its wartime career, had a distinguished service record in the Pacific.  Afterward, it operated in Australia until 1972, when it was transferred to Hawaii.  It became part of the Pacific Aviation Museum collection in April, 2012.  It’s service life exceeded 50,000 flight hours.  Nikon D500 w/ Tokina 10-17mm, processed with Aperture and Aurora HDR.
