Vintage Aero C-47 “Hit and Miss”

Had a chance to take a road trip this past Saturday to attend the 76th Anniversary of D-Day Commemoration at the Zephyrhills Museum of Military History. The Commemoration was suppose to happen the previous weekend on 6 June, but the event was postponed a week due to weather concerns.

One of the C-47s on display is owned by Vintage Aero, which is based at the Zephyrhills airport. This C-47 is a World War 2 veteran with a history of serving from just past D-Day to include the paratroop and glider drops of Market Garden and supply runs during the Battle of the Bulge.

This aircraft returned to the states to serve a mosquito sprayer in Southwest Florida before being retired.
