C-117D Skytrain

The Douglas R4D Skytrain (later designated C-117) was the military version of the famous DC-3 airliner. Skytrains were used to establish the Naval Air Transport Service (NATS) during World War II, and in a variety of specialized roles including paratrooper deployment and training. After the war, Skytrains continued to serve into the '80s, and modernized versions featured new outer wing panels, a longer fuselage, enlarged tail, and higher rated engines, substationally increasing performance.
