Description
This Douglas C-47-DL, serial number 42-32892, factory 9118 was delivered to the US Air Force on February 24th 1943. It was then handed to the USSR Air Force on 12th march 1943 under the lend-lease programme, where it was given the ID ‘USSR-H-328′. It was sent to the 7th Arctic Aviation Regiment of the 1st Air Division.According to order number OK/071 of April 16th 1943 it was enlisted by the Office of Polar Aviation to conduct ice reconnaissance. From October 22nd to November 11th 1943 it explored the Kara Sea under the command of the pilot, MA Titlova (no jokes please).From 3th June to 24th July 1944 it made further sorties from bases in Anderme for further reconnaissance of the Kara Sea. In 1945 it was sent to the Chukotka Polar Air Arm where it was given the number A-3072.One book describes the final fate of this aircraft.
"Emergency, Saturday April 13th 1947 in the area of the river Dudypty, North of the village Volochanka. Failure of the left engine. Successfully made a landing and sat for around twenty days, until discovered by the crew of F. Shatrova. 28 people survives, some with minor frostbite on their hands and face (mostly children). Commander Tyuikov, airborne radio operator Smirnov and seven passengers were missing – they had gone in search of help in the snowy tundra and never returned.
notice it still has U.S marking on right side of aircraft.

Thats what i thought too, the thing that threw me though was the U.S star and serial number that was hidden under the repainted body (paint stripped by weather) after being left there

I think that's Lisunov Li-2. Basically the same as C-47, just a soviet version.
