Navigation
 
 
There were various navigational instruments aboard the aircraft. Some belonged to the kit of the Navigator, some were on the plane. Below some of the items I have collected so far. The electronic navigation aids are covered on the communications page.

        Vector Plotting Machine. Not sure if it was used in the C-47. It could have been. But a nice machine it is. Beautifully crafted in its original box with all                                    
        accessories there. Will look great on a map.
