BRISTOW, OK---A vintage Douglas C-47 Sky Train is currently being restored by aviation enthusiasts at the Heartland Air Museum in Bristow.

‘Manufactured in 1944, it came out of the Douglas plant in Tulsa, Oklahoma,' said Heartland Air Museum Owner Andrew Donohue, ‘it then saw some action in the European theatre as well as the south pacific.'

Countless man-hours have been spent restoring the plane and finding parts on the Internet, and hopefully next year it will be flown to its new home at R.L. Jones Airport in Tulsa.
