Stopped to see the newly-painted C-119 Flying Boxcar at Atterbury-Bakalar Air Museum in Columbus, Indiana today. The paint job looks great, and they've done a great job bird-proofing it as well. The engines have clear plastic coverings and the wheel wells are screened in. The aircraft is obviously well cared for. It also looks like they are installing more in the interior. As of my last visit, there were no seats in the interior and seats have now been installed.

This is the former RCAF 22106 and N3003 with Hawkins & Powers.

And a bonus pic of the museum Phantom. It could use a repaint in more accurate colors, but it also looks well cared for.

Has the C119 cockpit been gutted or is it intact?
