‘Gooney Bird,’ staple of WWII, Berlin Airlift, flown by Missouri Air National Guard

The 131st Missouri Air National Guard’s Gooney Bird is now displayed on the grounds of the St. Louis Museum of Transportation in St. Louis, Missouri. During its last flight, the Gooney Bird was flown wingless by a Kansas Army National Guard CH-54 Sky Crane on July 12, 1974. A recent paint job has restored the aircraft to its D-Day invasion-look.(U.S. Air National Guard photo by Airman 1st Class Nathan Dampf/RELEASED)
