Douglas Dakota picking up a glider, Normandy; Second World W
Illustration showing a Douglas Dakota, C-47 Skytrain, swooping down with a hook trailing to pick up a Waco glider, Normandy, France, 1944. This system of launching and towing a glider was designed as a time-saving measure, so that tug aircraft, such as the Dakota, could pick up gliders without landing. This illustration was made by the Illustrated London News special artist, C.E. Turner using information supplied by the US Ninth Air Force.
