At the end of WWII in the Pacific many surviving Japanese aircraft were operated by a number of
new air arms. The C-47 and the Japanese built Showa L2D (Tabby) flew with the Chinese Nationalist and Chinese Communist air forces.

Did you know a few Japanese L2D's were also captured and operated by the USAAF they were passed on or later scrapped.
After WWII many allied nations as well as other countries, continued to operate the C-47 decades after the war.


I remember seeing Air America C-47's in Vietnam
as well as DC-3 /C-47 of Air Vietnam flying out of Pleiku in the Central Highlands...
