Built by Douglas. Delivered to the U. S. Army. Ferried overseas via Hawaii to Australia.
This C-47 crashed or was destroyed on the ground at Popondetta Airfield.
Afterwards, this aircraft was stripped for parts and the engine removed. During December 1942, the right wing remained in the grass next to the runway. Ultimate fate unknown.
