Originally 42-100903 with the US Army Air Force, this C-47 was among several acquired by Canadian Pacific Airlines in 1946. Pictured with Southern Frontier Airlines, the aircraft worked for many operators in Canada before returning to the USA as N141JR in October 1995. It had been displayed/stored at the Vintage Flying Museum in Forth Worth, TX while being restored to flying status when heavily damaged by a storm in 2012. Trucked to a new location, it has been slowly undergoing further restoration.
