Almost every major invasion that took place in Europe in World War II began with paratrooper drops, and in almost every case the C-47 was the aircraft that delivered these elite fighting troops. Few C-47 pilots had more combat experience than Sid Harwell, seen flying his Dakota in this typical action scene, dropping airborne troops into occupied Europe soon after D-Day. No matter what resistance he encountered, the good C-47 pilot put his aircraft right over the Dropping Zone, every time.
Each print is individually numbered and then signed by both the artist and by one of the most experienced C-47 pilots from the war:
