TC-ALP  Douglas DC-3CS1C3G                     (c/n 9261)


                                        Rather more steel tubing fence than DC-3, but a rare shot nonetheless from the Jerry Elmas
                                        collection.  As C-47A-15-DL  42-23399, it was used in the North Africa campaign in 1943
                                        and then moved to the 8th Air Force in England where it was used (and lived to tell the tale)
                                        as a 50th Squadron D-Day Paratroop Drop machine.       It was released for civilian use in
                                        December 1946 and went to DHY as TC-ALP.     After a three years with the Turkish Air
                                        Force starting on October 1966, it was broken up at Yesilkoy in 1969.
