Douglas C-47BTP Turbo Dak

The Turbo Dak is a South African conversion and upgrade of the aged Douglas C-47's of the SAAF. "Dakota" is the name adopted for the US-based Douglas DC-3 aircraft supplied to the RAF under the Lend-Lease Agreement during World War II. The era of modern air travel was heralded in by the prototype of the series - the Douglas DC-1 - which first flew in July 1933. The 24-passenger DC-3 evolved from the Douglas Sleeper Transport which had its maiden flight in December 1935. The type was produced in many variants and in the US alone 10349 were manufactured, while production under licence was undertaken in a number of other countries.
