Our C47B is a bonafide WW2 veteran with documented combat history in Operation Plunder/Varsity dropped in airborne troops and supplies as well as ferried wounded from the battlefield. She will be restored to WW2 colors and flown to Normandy for the 75th Anniversary of the D-Day Landings. Its restoration is the topic of a 90min documentary (filming currently in progress). We believe its restoration is a great way to highlight Zephyrhills Municipal Airport, its business-friendly environment, and the community of volunteers that will ultimately assist in its restoration.
