Notes[edit]

^Note A Military versions of the DC-3 were known as C-47 Skytrain, C-48, C-49, C-50, C-51, C-52, C-53 Skytrooper, C-68, C-84, C-117 and YC-129 by the United States Army Air Forces and the United States Air Force; and as the R4D and C-117 by the United States Navy. In Royal Air Force (and other British Commonwealth air forces') service, these aircraft were known as Dakotas. A number of DC-3s have been rebuilt with turboprop engines and have a variety of designations. The Basler BT-67 is probably the best known of these; others include the DC-3-65/AR and the AMI DC-3-65TP. Licence-built aircraft include the Lisunov Li-2 and Showa L2D.
