    Great stuff. I'm a big aviation fan and I've always loved the DC-3 and its military variant, the C-47, aka "Puff the Magic Dragon."

    Uh-oh, RT, sounds like we'll need an all X aviation photo forum as well. Fantastic images of the C-47. Can't wait for air show season to begin on the East Coast....

    Wasn't Puff the AC-47 variant, with the mini guns, in Vietnam? I always thought the C-47 designation was for Air Force military variants of the DC-3 (RD-4 I think, for Navy?).

    Actually, that's exactly right. I was being a bit broad with my definition. I guess you could say the AC-47 was a C-47 with the mini guns added.
