PostSubject: VALIANT AIR COMMAND, USA ORLANDO AIR MUSEUM   Tue 12 Aug 2008, 12:50 am

HELLO ALL,

WHILE OUT AND ABOUT NEAR NASA, THERE'S A SMALL AIR MUSEUM THAT IS RUN BY ALL EX- US AIRFORCE OR US-NAVY EMPLOYEE'S. THEY RELY ON DONATIONS OR SPONSORS TO MAINTAIN THE RESTORATION OF OLD WAR TIME AIRCRAFT THROUGH THE YEARS TO PRESENT.

HERE ARE THE PIC'S
:-

















































THIS C-47 TROOP CARRIER WAS PART OF THE NORMANDY D-DAY ASSULT, THE TICO BELL FLEW 5 MISSIONS ON D-DAY ALONE AND SEVERAL MORE ON D-DAY+1 INCLUDING TOWING A GLIDER. SHE WAS ON HER MAIDEN FLIGHT TEST AFTER 10 YEARS OF RESTORATION, AND HIT A CROSS WIND ON LANDING WHICH PUT HER INTO A SLIDE AND SHE BELLIED UP THE RUNWAY WITH BROKEN LANDING GEAR AND PROPS. SHE IS NEARLY RESTORED AGAIN WITH ONLY A FEW WEEKS LEFT BRFORE THEY TEST THE ENGINES AND GET HER FLYING ONCE MORE.




I WOULD HAVED LIKED TO GET MORE PIC'S, BUT AS THIS IS STILL A WORKING HANGER WITH ENGINEERS ABOUT I WAS LUCKY TO GET THESE ONE'S. HOPE TO SEE HER AT SOME AIR SHOWS SOON.......
