(cn 16301/33049) belonging to the American Airpower Museum, based on
the old Republic Airport at Farmingdale NY. This particular Skytrain
has the distinction of having actually dropped soldiers during the

in many airshows and historical reenactments.

any interesting information about the history of this aircraft, please drop
