C-47 Skytrain Diorama

In the fading light of an April day in 1944 at an undisclosed location somewhere in

Western Europe, heavily laden paratroopers of the 101st Airborne division (Screaming Eagles)

prepared their equipment for a daring secret mission behind enemy lines, a pre cursor

to the D Day landings. As the jumpmaster discusses details of the impending

flight with the aircrew, Paratroopers make final adjustments to harnesses,

discuss their mission and try to relax before wheels up. In the midst of all

this the truck driver decides its time to clean his windscreen! and the co-pilot

smoking a cigarette faces the C-47 pondering what this mission will bring

and will he make it back.
