C-47: The Work Horse in the House

The hero of Guadalcanal and Burma, the C-47 was the work horse of many a WWII military campaign. The planes were also nicknamed "Gooney Birds," and became instrumental in the post-war Berlin Airlift. In New Orleans, The National World War II Museum has a complete aircraft in its exhibition pavilion - a testament to the vital role the C-47 played in the War That Changed the World. More video about the museum's plane below.
