Douglas C-53 Skytrooper 'D-day Doll'

Douglas C-53 Skytrooper 'D-day Doll'

D-Day Doll was built at Douglas’s Santa Monica factory as part of a batch of 159 C-53s for the US Army Air Force. C-53s were closer to an airliner specification than C-47s and didn’t have the large cargo door or reinforced floor of the latter. C-53s were also missing the radome and had different instrument and control layouts and a more open layout at the front of the passenger compartment. Named Skytroopers, only 380 were built which makes the Doll and her D-Day squadron sister ‘Spirit of Benovia’ quite select. D-Day Doll also sports Wright Cyclone R-1820 engines rather than the more usual Twin Wasps. After a distinguished war career, D-Day Doll pursued a varied life with multiple owners in South and Central USA before working her way back to her home state of California where she now resides at Riverside Municipal Airport.
