N79017 (cn 49926) (Circa 1993) When I took this photo, I thought this was one of the coolest DC-3's I'd ever seen. After a gear collapse in 1999, it was bought by Basler Turbo Conversions of Oshkosh Wisconsin, who have restored it and painted it in military colors, complete with invasion stripes.

Thanks for the details of this airplane. As of October 2006 it is still sitting at the museum.
