As I understand it, Chairman Mao flew in this plane (or at least a C-47 with serial 476650) to atttend the Chongqing Negotiations in 1945. The TS-62 designator signifies that, due to a shortage of powerplants, after the Second World War this C-47 was fitted with Russian built ASh-62IR (АШ-62ИР) engines.
