An aircraft built before WW2, which served for four decades is now resting on the tarmac of the Hellenic Air Force Museum.

This specific C-47, SX-ECF was used by the Civil Aviation Authority, after fulfilling its military service and has a rich history.

It was kept for almost 30 years at the Civil Aviation Authority headquarters, after its last flight in 1978 and then moved to the HAF Museum.
