    Default Douglas C-47 Dakota exhaust system

    Hello everybody. A friend of mine found this exhaust from a C 47 airplane. The remarkable thing about it is that he found it in the Greek island of Leros, where it hasn't referred any activity of this airplane (RAF or USAF). Can anyone provide further info about the plane that this exhaust came from (dated 24/5/1943)?
    Thank you in advance for your reply.
    Best regards,
    Nikos

    Hi there,

    Can you provide some more details of where exactly this exhaust tube found in Leros ? For example : was this the only relic on site of the PW 1830 or the C-47 , or there are more?
    Perhaps this tube was removed after the war from a damaged or destroyed a/c in the nearby island of Kos, where RAF Dakotas operated during the September - October 1943 period and used by local people in Leros as "tool" for agricultural use and after some years it just was discarded to the fields as useless scrap.
    Anyway, it is very difficult to "match" this tube with the plane by using only the P/N and S/N of this spare part.
    Cheers ,
    John
