Remarks

N43XX currently operates as a private aircraft out of Riverside CA. This example was built as a C-53 "Sky trooper" in 1942 at the historic Douglas plant in Santa Monica.  She served in the Mediterranean Theater during WWII and has been documented as participating in the airborne invasions of Sicily and Southern Italy operating out of North Africa. She also participated in the resupply of beleaguered US troop around Bastonge in December of 1944.

Today she is configured as a corporate aircraft with 20 seats. The current owner operates her in accordance with 14 CFR Part 91. She is currently airworthy and attended Airventure in 2019. She can be seen at various locations around the southern California area (including Catalina island) and as a regular attendee at various shows each year.

The current owner has invested significantly in her development and she now boasts a pair of very low time Anderson R-1830-92 engines. The interior has always been admired for its blend of high density airline seating with a high quality corporate fit and finish, including a couches, a stand up bar and a spacious lavatory. A very comfortable and capable "Warbird"

This example is being offered for sale by Aerometal International Inc., an aviation maintenance and management company with extensive experience in providing effective maintenance and full service operational solutions for the DC-3.
