In Popular Culture
German Thrash metal band Sodom's 1989 album Agent Orange, revolving largely around Vietnam War themes, features a track named "Magic Dragon". The album's cover art drawing also depicts the gunner of an AC-47 in action.
The development and early deployment of the AC-47 is the subject of The Gooney Bird by William C. Anderson. Anderson went to Vietnam to research this novel, which features a fiction story written around a number of historical facts.
In the film The Green Berets, an AC-47 strike enables the American and South Vietnamese forces to retake their firebase, after losing it in an all-night battle.
AC-47 also appears in the first-person shooter Battlefield Vietnam.

Famous quotes containing the words culture and/or popular:
“The time will come when the evil forms we have known can no more be organized. Mans culture can spare nothing, wants all material. He is to convert all impediments into instruments, all enemies into power.”
—Ralph Waldo Emerson (18031882)
“Parents ability to survive a childs unabating needs, wants, and demands...varies enormously. Some people can give and give....Whether children are good or bad, brilliant or just about normal, enormously popular or born loners, they keep their cool and say just the right thing at all times...even when they are miserable themselves, inexhaustible springs of emotional energy, reserved just for children, keep flowing unabated.”
—Stella Chess (20th century)
