And now the Douglas C.47 Skytrain amphibian.

Some reports state that only one was constructed, but there were at least three, and one still exists in private hands in the United States. But where ?

Just found this one.
There were about 12 that were converted (the numbers are very hard to pin down).
The only survivor is in the US in Greenville, Maine.
It's currently off the floats and on it's wheeled gear again after some float damage.
They hope to remount it on the floats one day.

Thank you Mr W. I think that the top photo is of the existing aircraft.
