Was the C-47 "Southern Cross" featured in the movie "Dropzone?"

Recommended Posts

From this link, it looks like there were 2 DC-3's used in the movie. The one painted white is clearly not Southern Cross. Southern Cross has Wright R-1820 engines & not the P&W R-1830's that the one in the movie has.
The pictures of the one in camo aren't clear enough for me to tell

Mr. Douglas, and Wiki says the green one is on display at a warbird museum in Titusville, FL. So that would be "TICO Belle". Not familiar with that one.



IIRC, Mr. Douglas is still sitting on the tarmac at the Tullahoma TN airport after blowing an engine over a decade ago. It's been a while since I heard any news, but as far as I know, that's the last known location.

ETA: Looks like it's still there. https://www.google.com/maps/@35.3788535,-86.2409618,94m/data=!3m1!1e3

i have on occasion been accused of pulling low . My response. Naw I wasn't low I'm just such a big guy I look closer than I really am .

She's still there, and from what I've heard, Basler looked at it at one time and is not interested. I shot a few photos on a road trip through there. It's a good bet she'll never fly again....

You're not as good as you think you are. Seriously.
