This is a discussion thread for the following file:<br><br><b><a href=http://www.googleearthhacks.com/dlfile16203/Douglas-C-47-Skytrain.htm>Douglas C-47 Skytrain</a></b><br><br>Few aircraft are as well known or were so widely used for so long as the C-47 or &quot;Gooney Bird&quot; as it was affectionately nicknamed. The aircraft was adapted from the DC-3 commercial airliner which appeared in 1936. The first C-47s were ordered in 1940 and by the end of WW II, 9,348 had been procured for AAF use. They carried personnel and cargo, and in a combat role, towed troop-carrying gliders and dropped paratroops into enemy territory.<br />
<br />
After WW II, many C-47s remained in USAF service, participating in the Berlin Airlift and other peacetime activities. During the Korean War, C-47s hauled supplies, dropped paratroops, evacuated wounded and dropped flares for night bombing attacks. In Vietnam, the C-47 served again as a transport, but it was also used in a variety of other ways which included flying ground attack (gunship) , reconnaissance, and psychological warfare missions. <br><br><img src=http://www.googleearthhacks.com/images/new/080505/545155ADMIN.jpg>

Why you need pro version for insert photos in a file?

Just type in the placemark: <img src="url">. Then you will have the image in the placemark description.

Type: <_img_src="URL"_>

Without the _ ! This is the only way to show it.
