Photographer's Remark

This C-47D (ex F-GEOA, French Navy 720 / 76420, French AF 476420, RAF KN379 and USAAF 44-76420) was acquired by the museum in the early 2000s. It came from the Musée de l'Aéronautique de Nancy, which sustained severe damage during a storm in Dec 1999 and was forced to close in 2000. As can be seen in this photo, by 2009 the aircraft carried no markings on the left side of the tail. The right side however showed fake serial "2108979" and code K.
