Airplane picture

This photo of a Douglas C-47 Skytrain was taken by Cole in 1984 while he was pumping off a load of diesel fuel at MacDowel Lake, northeast of Red Lake. It was built in Oklahoma City in 1942 for the U.S. Air Force and immediately transferred to the Royal Air Force. The British used it during the invasion of Europe.
