C-47 Skytrain Army Air Force Handbook

C-47A, C-47B, C-47C, C-47D (USAF Series)
R4D-1, R4D-5, R4D-6, R4D-7 (Navy Models)

These pages were scanned from an actual manual that belongs to the son of a man who did maintenance on a DC-3 fleet owned by Pan American Airlines. Since borrowing this manual, I bought a partial copy from a guy on eBay.
