Flexible Performance Of C-47 Transport Planes Is Due In Part To Their Two 1,2

Palmer, Alfred T.,, photographer.

Flexible performance of C-47 transport planes is due in part to their two 1,200 horsepower radial engines and to their three-blade variable-pitch propellers, Long Beach, Calif.

It ferries men and cargo across oceans and mountains, tows gliders and brings paratroopers and their equipment to scenes of action
