Help bring Douglas DC-8-62 N41CX home!


Douglas DC-8 FlyingDouglas DC-8-62 N41CX is the Airline History Museums first international story. It is one of 556 built of which there are now only 5 left in service! We need your help and your support to ferry N41CX to a new home here in Kansas City. At the museum the plane will be maintained and be made available for tours.  We have created a plan to get this great airplane back to Kansas City but it takes the support just like you to help make it happen. Every little bit helps so please donate!

Once we have the date set for the ferry flight, we will be making announcements about the arrival ceremony will be held at the Airline History Museum.  We hope you will join us.

A Long History of Service.
