C-47B Skytrain

Keep Us Flying!

Our C-47B is a bona fide WWII veteran with document combat history in Operation Varsity. She dropped airborne troops, supplies, and ferried wounded from the battlefield.

We have restored the exterior to original WWII colors. The interior will be restored to an original WWII configuration and is currently in progress. She will be flown to Normandy for the 75th anniversary of the Operation Overlord D-Day landings. 

The restoration is the topic of a documentary currently being filmed by Peterson & Sons Productions. We believe the restoration is a great way to highlight the community of volunteers and supportive environment at the Zephyrhills Municipal Airport.
