Another one of those placemarks where you need to go back to the future to see it. The current default imagery of Valkenburg from 2008 is pixelated. In the historic layer however, there is newer imagery from 2012 and 2014 which both show C-47B G-AMCA on the ramp.
I have updated the initial post to include a number of new discoveries and relocation of DC-3's and similar planes. This is the first update in about 5 months. All new locations were posted by persistent searcher v6srs. So thanks, Sean and keep up the good work.
I have not investigated all old placemarks so some planes may have moved. You may still be able to see them by using the Historical Imagery time slider.

hi! am no kind of a plane expert, so would you please take a look, whether this one meets your requirements: (probably the russian brother: Li-2?) plane UA.kmz (832 B) 47°41'25.65"N, 31°48'37.20"E (imagery date: 9/24/2003)
just tell me if this one is off topic (and that what kind of plane it is then), so I can edit my placemark!
p.s.: off topic for sure: also notice -if you interested in- "ghosts" of burial mounds N of mark, retaining as different soil color (plant mass) spots on aerial imagery! (;
The DC-3 at New Smyrna Beach has changed its position and now has a D-Day paint scheme... (If it's the same airplane)
It looks like the original plane that has been very nicely restored. It retains the observation dome on top of the cockpit area. It is possible someone took the wrecked plane mentioned here and rebuilt it.
