This is a Douglas C-47 Skytrain from the McChord AFB Museum in the gorgeous Pacific Northwest. This particular plane is, I believe, serial number 44-76502.  All the planes at McChord are outside displays and interior shots are not available, other than climbing under and looking up wheel wells.  If you happen to have more information about this plane, we'd love to hear it.  Enjoy.
