Unknown "4th" plane USAF patch?


Recommended Posts

Would appreciate any thoughts as to ID on this patch. 

 

Stylized plane is marked USAF and there's a '4' on top. Coat in rear suggests some kind of engineering or technical bend possibly?

 

Thanks!

Never saw it before, looks like a C-47. It also looks German made maybe? I agree it looks like a support type unit, which could be tough to ID. The only support unit with that number in Europe I know of was the 4th Aviation Depot Squadron in the UK, and it had a different badge, but who knows with these sometimes. I don't think they had any aircraft assigned but again nothing from the 50s surprises me. LMK if it is German made and I'll see what I can dig up there.

Makes sense, except for the 4 but maybe that was a crew number or something as it would be an unofficial patch. Here's the wing they fell under, the 7030th Combat Support Wing. German made as well.
