The Douglas C-47 Skytrain is a military transport aircraft that was developed from the Douglas DC-3 airliner. It was used extensively by the Allies during World War II and remained in front line operations through the 1950s with a few remaining in operation to this day.
This model is personally signed by William "Wild Bill" Guarnere from the Band of Brothers. He earned the nickname "Wild Bill" and lived up to it; he was terror on the battlefield and had a reckless attitude towards the Germans. Guarnere received the Silver Star for combat during D-Day, and was later decorated with two Bronze Stars and two Purple Hearts. Certificate of Authenticity included.
