v2.0.4 / TOC (2 chapters) / 01 nov 16 / greg goebel

* The "Douglas DC-3" airliner was a milestone of aviation, the basis for the introduction of practical commercial airline service in the 1930s. It achieved even more distinction in military service as the "C-47 Dakota" transport. General Dwight Eisenhower described the C-47 as one of the four machines that won World War II, along with the bulldozer, 6x6 truck, and the landing craft. This document provides a history and description of the DC-3 / C-47.
