New C-47 paint job
« on: August 01, 2018, 01:34:56 PM »

The Yankee Air Museum’s renamed C-47 was recently unveiled at Oshkosh. The paint scheme on the C-47 depicts the 1st Air Commando Group in the China-Burma-India theater during 1943-1944. The "Hairless Joe" nose art on this aircraft honors then Major Dick Cole. Prior to serving in the CBI theater, Dick Cole was Lt. Col. Jimmy Doolittle's co-pilot on April 18, 1942 in the daring B-25 raid on Tokyo.
Lt. Col. Dick Cole, pictured standing in front of Yankee’s C-47 as well as in front of the original aircraft (on the left side, squatting), will be 103 in September!
The newly named C-47 was painted by donation thanks to Kalitta Air, LLC and Sherwin-Williams with an outstanding job by artists Kevin Max Wisniewski, Andrea Toussaint, & Nic Berlin Johnson.

Very nice. I am going to assume that the plane is in flyable condition. It seems to have been moved around a bit
