The AC is a C-46 which was acquired from the Marines after sitting at Pensacola for years.   Pending restoration.   This particular aircraft actually flew supply missions over the "hump' to China in WWII.

I never realized a ball gunner in a B17 did not have a down-the-barrel sighting mechanism

Exhaust flame suppressor used on C-47s carrying paratroops and gliders to destinations in France in the wee hours of 6/6/44
