Trans World Airlines – Douglas DC-2-118B

Douglas DC-2 N1934D, owned by the Museum of Flight in Seattle, has finally arrived in Seattle. Restoration of this airplane began in 1982, when the airplane was leased from the Donald Douglas Museum by the Douglas Historical Foundation – primarily a group of Douglas retirees. When they towed the airplane from Santa Monica to Long Beach, it was a basket case. Thousands of volunteer man-hours over a 20 year period were contributed by many Douglas retirees towards its restoration. After its sale to the Museum of Flight, it was moved to Van Nuys for completion of the lengthy and meticulous restoration by Museum Trustee and Board Member Clay Lacy, at his faciltiies in Southern California.
