This metal airplane sign of the C-47 Skytrain aircraft was also called the Dakota. The Douglas Skytrain was a military transport aircraft based upon the commercial airliner the DC-3. Flown by many armed forces, 10,174 of the C-47s were built.
The image of the C-47 airplane is handsomely displayed on heavy gauge steel sign that is made in America. There are several steps to produce the exceptionally detailed airplane sign. The process begins with a powder coating applied to the steel plate that is baked. This gives the sign its vibrant colors and then a satin finish provides a smooth and sturdy surface. Finally rivets are drilled into the metal to make the sign easy to hang.
