Restoring a C-54
Following the destruction of a tornado through the regional airport in Walterboro, South Carolina in April 2020, the much cherish Douglas C-54E Skymaster Spirit of Freedom aircraft at the Berlin Airlift Historical Association was severely damaged. With luck on their side, the organization was able to find a replacement aircraft with a C-54D. The museum is currently raising money to bring the replacement C-54D to airworthy status, maintain and repaint it, and display it on the air show circuit.
