Kermit Weeks The Gooney Bird

After a nine-month layover at the EAA AirVenture Museum in Oshkosh, Wisconsin, a World War II C-47 Dakota, will make the final leg of its voyage this weekend to its new home at Central Florida’s Fantasy of Flight, home to the world’s largest private collection of rare and vintage planes.

Fantasy of Flight creator and founder Kermit Weeks purchased the plane, also known as the Skytrain, last year from a private owner in the U.K. and began a seven-leg journey last July to fly the plane back to the United States via the northern portion of the “Great Circle Route.” Facebook fans were able to track the plane’s progress last July as it traveled from Kemble, England to Wick, Scotland, then on to Reykjavik, Iceland; Narssarsuag, Greenland; Goose Bay, Newfoundland and Labrador, Canada and finally landed at in Oshkosh Wisconsin.
