Ex 44-76935, one of 44 TC-47B navigation trainers transferred to US Navy as RD4-7s. Apparently later used by US naval attachés in Paris and London, and designated as a VC-47J at some point. However, it was used as an ordinary transport in Vietnam by US Navy headquarters in Saigon. It crashed on a flight from Cam Ranh to Saigon on 10 March 1967 and 25 people were killed.
