Description: Douglas C-47 Skytrain 43-48608 c/n 14424/25869 was delivered to the USAAF in 1944 arriving
too late for the Normandy Invasion but did make drops at the Battle of the Bulge, Arnhem and the
Drop on the Rhine. The term Biscuit Bomber comes from Australian infantry referring to their
transports re-supplying using cardboard ice cream containers full of straw and food because of a
lack of proper containers. 43-48608 went to the French AF, Belgian AF and Israeli AF and
eventually ended at the Estrella Warbird Museum in California.
