  3. Eric Mc says

    The name \"Dakota\" was used by the RAF for their versions of the Douglas DC-3 (or C-47).

    The DC-3 was a twin engined airliner. The larger DC-4 was four engined.

    We have the airplane at La Guardia listed in our records as a Dakota DC 4, but we're not sure whether this is right. Can anyone confirm?
