N.C. Museum Readies Provider for Flight

The Warriors & Warbirds flying collection in Monroe, N.C., has been going for almost ten years now. They have become well known for their flying displays, including paratrooper drops, from a Curtiss C-46 Commando nicknamed “Tinker Belle.” The beautiful green and grey beast of the type which once flew The Hump in the China-Burma-India theatre of operations during World War II is one of a half dozen or so still flying, and the only one on the air show circuit, although that is set to change.

Warriors & Warbirds has recently added another unsung transport hero to its fleet in the shape of a Fairchild C-123 Provider with the wonderful nickname ‘Ponderous Polly’. WarbirdsNews recently talked to Joseph Atkins at Warriors & Warbirds to learn more about their project.
