Note the small round holes in the windows of the C-47. It enabled the passengers or crew to fire back at the enemy. These will be noted in wartime C-47 and C-54 aircraft.

Would have hated being a pilot in that C-47. Like a flying gas can...would have gone up like a roman candle with a hit from even small arms fire.
