In June 10th 1984, Len and the other Airmen flew the Douglas C-124 Globemaster II "Ole Shakey"into Travis AFB, CA. You can still visit the Plane at the www.jimmydoolittlemuseum.org on Travis AFB.
The museum was given the C-124 in August 1982. The aircraft had been stored for many years outside at the Aberdeen Proving Ground in Maryland, where the C-124 was used as a storage shed. Transporting the aircraft by ground from Maryland to California would of been expensive, so the decision was made to fly the aircraft to the Travis AFB Museum.Volunteers joined with members of the Air National Guard's 116th Tactical Fighter Wing from Dobbins Air Force Base to restore the C-124 to an airworthy condition.
The aircraft was then ferried from Aberdeen Dobbins AFB in Georgia, where the members of the 116th TFW completed the aircrafts restoration. The aircraft was then flown cross country to Norton AFB in California to Travis AFB.. The C-124 arrived at the Travis Air Museum at exactly 1400 on June 10, 1984. The first recorded flight of a C-124 in nearly a decade.
