“Skunkie,” B-25C Mitchell bomber, for sale
« on: September 23, 2010, 05:25:12 AM »

"'Skunkie,' the B-25C Mitchell bomber pulled out of Lake Greenwood in 1983 and stored in Columbia since 1992, is on the block. But critics say the plane should stay in South Carolina.

"The Celebrate Freedom Foundation, which was given the plane by the city of Columbia in 2007, is looking to sell the bomber to a museum or other group that can protect and display it, preferably a museum in the Southeast, said Larry Russell, the foundation’s new executive director."

Well, Skunkie has a new owner, but needs a new home.  Any Tighars looking for an interesting backyard conversation piece?

Here she is coming out of her home of 39 years.  People looked for it for a long time, but when they got serious, all it took was one decent bit of information to have everything fall into place.
