D-Day Veteran C-47 Needs Help

I’m not really feeling up to a full post right now, so here is a quick link.  There is a C-47 at an airport in Freemont, Ohio that actually carried airborne troops into combat on D-Day.  She’s not in the best of repair, but there is a group trying to get funding to restore her.  A quick google search didn’t show anything (on the first page…cut me a break, I’m very sick right now), so hopefully I can get more information about this at some point.  To the link!

    I have seen this airplane from the road glad someone is trying to help get it going. Can we get in touch with anyone?

      I’m not actually local to this aircraft, but it looks like warbirdrescue.com may have more information on who to contact if you are interested in helping with the project. I’ll try to get information to add to the post, but in the mean time they may be able to connect you with someone who lives close to you!
