    Its housed at Eisenhower National here in Wichita, surprisingly. They were using its hangar for a function. There is a twin, however, as it's one of two flyers remaining.

    My dad's mom was working at Doaks aircraft in Long Beach, Ca in 1942. She died of a heart attack on the construction floor. My mother's father had returned to the navy after a medical discharge and died in 1942 at the San Francisco Naval Yard. Also of a heart attack. The only two family deaths during WW II.
