c/n 9707, C-47A-35-DL 42-23845 (Click on photo to enlarge)
This beauty from my photo collection shows USAAF C-47A-35-DL 42-23845, c/n 9707 undergoing major repair or overhaul. Both wings and #2 engine are off but #1 is still on. It has the tail cone for towing gliders.
There’s a P-38 to the left of the tail. Going clockwise there’s a B-24, and then Martin B-26C-30-MO Marauder 41-35423. There are three B-25’s, and the tail number on the one closest to us ends with 4773. Finally, there’s a B-24 in front of that B-25.
I can’t find any further history on this one but couldn’t resist posting the photo! Any idea of time and location on this one? Any thoughts on why it is marked “Secret?”
