Made using original airframe repainted to it’s original USAAF paint scheme during restoration, the wear and tear on your tag reflects this aircraft’s incredible history as a liberator of Europe in WWII.
The aircraft christened “Night Fright” took part in all the Airborne missions in Europe during the war, dropping paratroopers, towing gliders, evacuating wounded and flying tons of supplies to the front line.
C-47 Skytrain 42-100521, formerly of the 79th Troop Carrier Squadron, 436th Troop Carrier Group, flew with the USAAF from Membury airfield (Station 466) during WWII.
This product supports the restoration efforts of the team at Night Fright. Once completed, the aircraft will be a flying memorial to those men and women who served as part of Troop Carrier Command.
