The C-97 "Angel of Deliverance" Needs Your Help!

On Tuesday, June 4, the C-97 Angel of Deliverance was returning to Reading, PA from Hagerstown, MD to participate in the annual Mid Atlantic Air Museum World War II Weekend event.

At a point 20 miles southwest of Reading, the number two engine suffered a catastrophic internal failure and had to be shut down and feathered.

While a routine 3 engine landing was made at Reading, we are now left in need of a replacement engine.

There are a few out there, finding a airworthy replacement may be difficult.

We are looking at a cost of around $300,000 dollars!

This amount will not only help us obtain a replacement R-4360-59B engine, but a meaningful supply of spares which will secure the airplaneā€™s future for a long time to come.

If you can help, please send a donation to:

Berlin Airlift Historical Foundation
PO Box 782
Farmingdale, NJ 07727.

You can also donate directly via PayPal to Airlift48@aol.com.

The Berlin Airlift Historical Foundation is a 501 c 3 tax exempt charitable organization.

Good luck getting her back in the air. It's been a pleasure seeing her in Reading the past two years. My daughter and I enjoyed walking through it this year.

Curious of how the project is going? Have you all been working on it?
