The Douglas C47, known as the Dakota in the Royal Air Force and Commonwealth services, became the world's best known transport aircraft. The type saw widespread use by the Allies during World War Two and by Air Forces and airlines post-war.

The RAFM holds the centre fuselage and nose section of a war-veteran Dakota that were latterly built into a Hampshire bar.

The walk-through centre fuselage section is on view in the 'Aeronauts Interactive' area (Off Historic Hangars) and the nose section is currently stored in the Bomber Hall awaiting display.
