"Jiminy Cricket" is depicted as it flew for the Sicily operation in improvised night camouflage. It was one of the original 52 C-47s that deployed to Egypt with the 316th TCG in December 1942.

The C-47 Skytrain or Dakota (RAF designation) was a military transport aircraft developed from the Douglas DC-3 civilian airliner. It was used by the U.S. and its Allies during World War II in a variety of roles including airlifting supplies, casualty evacuation, glider towing and, perhaps most famously, dropping U.S. and Allied paratroopers into combat. The C-47 differed from the DC-3 in numerous modifications which included; a large cargo door, a reinforced floor and upgraded landing gear. In the supply role it could carry up to 6,000 pounds of equipment. As a paratroop aircraft it was equipped with folding benches for 27 armed troops. After World War II thousands of surplus C-47s were converted for use by civilian airlines and private owners. Douglas Aircraft built more than 10,000 C-47s in numerous variants.
