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 airplane’s future for a long time to come.
