 This plane was built as C-47A 43-15211 and delivered to the USAAF on 2/19/44, and assigned to the U.S. 8th Air Force in the European Theater on 3/30/44. War record unknown, but on 1/1/48 it was placed in storage in West Germany. On 6/28/50 the plane went to the Norwegian Air Force as “315211,” being assigned to No.335 Sqdn, with fuselage code of “T-AL.” In 1951 the code changed to “BW-B” and in 1956 it became “BW-S.” On 6/28/56 the plane went to the Royal Danish Air Force as K-683, serving with No. 721 Sqdn until sold to the Valiant Air Command in Florida during October 1982. It was then registered as N3239W in January 1983, finally being delivered to the U.S. that May. It then began operating for use as a jump plane for parachuting.
