Graham White notes that the C-47 was used for Hump missions. I have also seen references to "double blowers' used in C-47's. Are they referring to R-1830-88's with two stage two speed superchargers or 90C's with just two speed blowers which later were locked out?

So, now I wonder how many -88's were flying on C-47's and where? I think this engine had surging problems, so maybe they didn't last long in the fleet.
