This C-53 has no French history. It flew as 43-2023 with the USAAF and received several US civil registrations (NC19934 , N93C, N81R, N400RS and finally N56NA) before ending up in the Montelimar museum

N56NA (ex USAAF 43-2023 and United Air Lines N19934) was operated by Northern Airways since Sep 1983 and withdrawn from use by them in July 1989. It was acquired by Peter Milic and flown to Europe in May 1990, then on to Africa. In July 1991 it arrived at Jerusalem, Israel for storage (until at least June 1994). Then in July 1996 the Skytrooper turned up in France, and was first seen at the museum in May 1998. It was registered to Sunbest Industries Corp. in March 2001 and then to Maghreb Aero Service in September 2001, but those were paper actions only and the aircraft has remained on display ever since.

In the woods near the village of Best (NL) a museum called 'Bevrijdende Vleugels' (= Wings of Liberation) reminds us of D-Day, an important event in our history. The museum had two well-restored Dakotas parked outside in the markings used during the invasion. Both carry a fake serial, "290321" on this one is in fact the birth date of Jan Driessen, the founder of the museum. In real life this aircraft was USAAF 43-2022.
