Bahf C-54 Flys To Santa Monica CA

Tue Jul 19, 2005 11:43 am

One phone call is all it took & a special invitation & Flying event,to get Tim & the crew to get our C-54/DC-4 checked & ready to fly out to the WEST coast to Santa Monica Cal. Over 60 yrs ago the Douglas plant in Santa Monica produced many C-54/R5D&DC-4's. This great proptransport is one of over 300 that flew in the BERLIN AIRLIFT of 1948/49. The "Spirit Of Freedom" is a flying museum exibit of the history & education of the Big Lift.It will be great to get our C-54 finaly out west & to Santa Monica where she was born! "Keep the Big Pistons Flying" THANKS, JR
