Photographed at Tulln in Austria post war, this C47 was actually based in Italy at Rosignano and later Naples. Sporting the 4TCS emblem the plane may have been assigned on detached service to 62nd Troop Carrier Group when that unit deployed to India before returning to fly operations in the Mediterranean.

4th Troop Carrier Squadron was engaged in flying mail, freight and personnel between bases after hostilities had ended.
