Douglas DC-3, C-47 Original Rudder pedal
Here we have an original rudder pedal from a DC-3,C-47 .
Originally the Douglas DC-3 was a civilian airliner but the WWII military version was referred to as the C-47 Skytrain.. Undoubtedly one of the iconic aircraft of WWII, it was used in several different roles in virtually every theatre of war. Most people associate the aircraft with the famous Market Garden operation for which it was used to drop several thousand paratroopers into the Arnhem area in the Netherlands.
The aircraft subsequently went on to serve in both a military capacity and a civilian one for many years after WWII and examples are still flown commercially today.
This rudder pedal are presumably from a C-47 as traces of the original USAAF green finish can be seen. There are several part numbers to be seen as shown in the photos and the pedal still operates via the spring mechanism. It has not been been renovated so its up to the buyer to repaint it or to leave it in its original finish.
A nice display piece from an iconic aircraft.
