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 fake serial "2108979" and code K and the right side of the fin. The left side of the fin was devoid of any markings.
