In conjunction with the Cavanaugh Flight Museum, we are excited to display one of the few flightworthy CV-2B aircraft in world. Designed in the late 1950’s as a STOL (Short Takeoff and Landing) military transport, it proved vital to the U.S. Army in the Vietnam War. Capable of operating from short unpaved airstrips in the jungle it provided lifesaving ammunition, medicine, and food for troops deep behind enemy lines. This particular Caribou serial no. 62-4149 served with the 61st Aviation Company in Vietnam. During restoration, 21 patched bullet holes were found throughout the aircraft. Don’t miss seeing this unique aircraft with such a rich history!
