Inscription
This memorial is dedicated to the tradition, courage and sacrifice of those who value her in the defense of this nation.

Of all the airplanes ever built, the C-47 has far surpassed the others in faithful service, dependability and achievement.

Affectionately known as the "Gooney Bird" she was used extensively in World War II, the Berlin Airlift, Korea and Southeast Asia.

This grand old lady has been shot up, shot down, bent almost beyond recognition, but never obliterated.

Born in the days of wooden propellers, she is still flying.

Dedicated 9 June 1973
