This print by Alfred T Palmer captures the flexible performance of C-47 transport planes during World War II. Taken at the Douglas Aircraft Company in Long Beach, California in 1942, it showcases the remarkable features that make these planes so versatile. The image reveals two powerful 1,200 horsepower radial engines that contribute to the exceptional performance of these aircraft. Additionally, their three-blade variable-pitch propellers further enhance their capabilities. These impressive attributes enable the C-47 to undertake a wide range of crucial tasks for the army. From ferrying men and cargo across vast oceans and treacherous mountains to towing gliders and delivering paratroopers with their equipment to battlefields, this aircraft plays a vital role in military operations. The photograph also provides a glimpse into America's industrial might during this era. It portrays a blue-collar worker amidst an expansive airplane plant, highlighting the immense effort put forth by countless individuals who supported wartime production. Alfred T Palmer's skillful composition captures both the technical prowess of these transport planes and pays tribute to those who contributed to their creation.
