Dakota Mk.III



The Douglas DC-3 twin-engine was certainly one of the most famous transport aircraft in the history of aviation thanks to its reliability, flexibility and operating life. During the Second World War  a version dedicated to military use was developed: the Douglas C-47 Skytrain. Produced in large numbers by American factories, it was used extensively on all fronts and by all Allied armies. In particular, the C-47A used by the British Royal Air Force and by Commonwealth troops were renamed "Dakota" and were used for logistical activities, tactical transport, the launch of paratroopers, and the evacuation of wounded. The two 1,200-horsepower Pratt & Whitney engines were able to make the "Dakota" reach a maximum speed of 360 km / h and to transport a load in excess of 2,500 kg.
