Well the live feed wasn’t the greatest of quality for the departure, so here is a recorded video of Luck of the Irish arriving back from its flight!
PHASE ONE TESTING IS NOW COMPLETE!!!
Now we are on to Pilot training! ... See MoreSee Less
What a PROUD DAY for the members and volunteers of Air Heritage Museum!!! Today was the first real test of the quality of their six-year restoration. Considering that the airframe is almost 75 years old, the flights have been a resounding success!!! This 3.9-hour flight, including 15 landings, completed the five-hour FAA required Phase I flight test period. This was required because we are currently operating under the Experimental/exhibition rules as we are an ORIGINAL Military C-47, having never been in civilian hands prior to us, or converted after the war to a DC-3. We hope to change that in the future with conversion to a Normal Category DC-3C. A special thanks goes out to Jeff Haliday (ret) and Lori Delewski at the FAA, Director of Maintenance Greg Werking, DC-3 pilots extraordinaire Capt. Chris Polhemus and Capt. Jon Lindsay for their oversight of our flight test phase, and all of the supporters that have donated parts, supplies, labor, and money to make this restoration possible. THANKS TO ALL!!!!! Ps. What a joy to fly!
Watched it fly over yesterday. What a beautiful sight and sound! Great job!
Great video and restoration...
Thanks for NOT adding Andrew Sisters music!!
What a feeling it must be when it all comes together!!!
Time in flight should be approximately 3.75hrs.
Loti should be making one touch and go after taking off before heading to Youngstown airport to do most of its time building before coming back to beaver county.
While we are waiting...

Remember to let the D-Day Squad remove you from the list of attending aircraft as it still shows you attending.

I saw this plane flying around just a little while ago and it was so awesome!! I drove to the airport to see if I could get a look at it but did not see it! Oh well ,maybe next time!
You guys do an amazing job!!
Will you do the wings and wheels at Ernie Hall Museum?
I've been watching the work on this for two or three years. Good to see LOTL in the air.
