Paine Field (KPAE) in Everett, WA is home to a variety of both modern and vintage aircraft. At the Historic Flight Foundation (HFF) there are some glorious classic aircraft that have been painstakingly restored and are much loved by not only their owner, but also the volunteers who look after them.
Although N877MG now lives out its life parked on the ramp at HFF, its history began 1200 miles away in Long Beach California when it was rolled out as a C-47B on the 31st of July 1944 and delivered to the China National Aviation Company (CNAC). At the time, the CNAC was part owned by Pan American Airways but was also part owned by the Chinese government (still in existence today as the parent company to Air China).
C-47B number 100 began its time in the “Far East” by flying over the hump for a number of years. It continued to fly the same area until a number of years after the war, it was renumbered XT-119 and flew an “air bus” route from Shanghai to Canton (now Guangzhou) and Hong Kong. I would image that the 32 passengers crammed inside a DC-3 designed to hold, on average, 20 people did not make for a comfortable flight. As the situation went back and forth between governments, the plane was eventually sold to Claire Chennault, founder of the famous Flying Tigers from World War II. Now sold, it was destined for its new home back in the US, but instead of being flown, it was placed on a cargo ship. After service with Johnson & Johnson it flicked around between a number of different owners, until 2006 when the aircraft was bought by the Historic Flight Foundation.


The weather radar and and additional upgrades were removed, DC3 instruments were re-installed and the nose was returned back to that of a DC-3. Originally during the restoration process much of the history of the aircraft had not yet been uncovered. This list is what the owners required to have stocked in the Galley when it was operated by Johnson & Johnson. I found the history of this ship particularly interesting as I am a long time J&J employee.
As a former US Army C-47 flight engineer on a C-47H, I logging approximately 2400 hours from July 66 – April 69, I certainly enjoyed flying the C-47. As per above crediting, all photos are either my own or provided to us by the Historic Flight Foundation. Other DC-3s that were in a similar situation were ferried on-board a US Navy Aircraft Carrier, the only time civilian aircraft has been transported on a naval vessel of that kind.
Although I have tried to share what I could about the plane, you really need to get out to HFF and explore this one for yourself. With a passion for aircraft photography, traveling and the fun that combining the two can bring. Mal is an Australian native who has been a huge fan of airlines and aviation and currently works in airport-related operations.


My understanding is that this one used to be inside the Museum of Flight in AS colors, then in ’97 it was swapped out for a different plane and is now left to rot.
The aircraft was picked up in Miami by Pete Goutiere and began it’s long journey around the world. It was given larger, more powerful engines, longer range fuel tanks, even a weather radar which made it became a unique aircraft. Insights into the aviation world with a bit of a perspective thanks to working in the travel industry.
There are also provisions for a sweep car with a mechanic, a first-aid kit, a professional photographer and luggage space on board.
