Built in 1958, and delivered to Eastern Air Lines, during January 1958. In service for only 5 years, before it was sold to the Nomads Flying Club. It was their first airplane. After only 5 years, it was re-sold. Mostly parked for 32 years, before being ferried from dowtown Minneapolis airport in September, of 2004. After a lengthy and thorough restoration, it is almost ready to return to the skies.
Douglas C-124 Restoration & Flight
Another rare VHS tape appears after nearly three decades sitting in a cabinet somewhere. Apparently this video of the restoration and flight of a Douglas C-124 was shot and narrated by a gentleman named Larry Rengstorf in the fall of 1983. Following 10 years sitting in "the old aircraft field," a year of active maintenance, and the purchase of five Pratt-Whitney R-4360s engines, this rare Douglas C-124 Globemaster II is readied for a ferry flight across the country back in 1983. The aircraft now resides at the Jimmy Doolittle Museum at Travis AFB, California.
