The C-47, the military version of the DC-3, is still in use today, and is one of the most influential aircraft in history. This "Band of Brothers" C-47 Skytrain Executive Model is signed by William "Wild Bill" Guarnere, one of the original 140 members of Easy Company, the 506th Parachute Infantry Regiment, 101st Airborne Division. Guarnere joined Easy Company to fight in WWII. He mad his first combat jump on D-Day as part of the Allied Invasion of France. He earned the nickname "Wild Bill" and lived up to it; he was terror on the battlefield and had a reckless attitude towards the Germans. Guarnere received the Silver Star for combat during the Brecourt Manner Assault on D-Day, and was later decorated with two Bronze Stars and two Purple Hearts. Intended for ages 14 and up. 12"l. x 18"w. x 10"h.
