C47’s are one of the most brilliant airframes ever designed.
I grew up in the 1950’s when all the military surplus planes spawned air lines all over the west coast.
At about age 9, my first plane ride was a DC3 (converted C47) and went from my 8000 person town to a 10,000 person one. Hubs? What are those??
I recall walking “up hill” from the tail end door to my wicker backed seat.
And oh that sound. People in our town would comment “Uh oh. West Coast (Airlines) is late today...” because they’d listen for the approach into the field
