Actually it's a C-47. As Wikipedia states: "The C-47 differed from the civilian DC-3 in numerous modifications, including being fitted with a cargo door, hoist attachment, and strengthened floor, along with a shortened tail cone for glider-towing shackles, and an astrodome in the cabin roof." The astrodome is clearly evident in this pic even though it's painted in civilian PAA livery.

This is the only minor military crash that I was ever aboard, in Greenland early 1950's. Not the plane's fault. Sondestrom AFB. You never lift a Gooney Bird off from a three point configuration! Always get your speed and tail up before lift off.

Is he signaling for a right turn?

8th, may - 61 years ago was my very first flight in such an DC-3 and can still remember the interior. Very impressive.

HFF's DC-3 was delivered in 1944 as a C-47B from the Douglas plant at Long Beach, CA.
During WW II, she served in Asia flying supplies over the Himalayas (The Hump) to the Chinese.
