N199AB update

June 25, 2008

Here is the latest on the C-133 move to Travis Air Museum.

We just spoke with Terry Juran from the museum and he is very upbeat on the response we have had from former C-133 members and their families! He was able to secure a greatly reduced price for the fuel by including the C-133 as a participant in the Air Show at Travis Air Force Base over Labor Day weekend.

From the promised donations and from the Travis Air Museum Board who pledged $5,000 during its Board Meeting this weekend, we appear close to one third of the total dollar amount we need for fuel.

If you are able to contribute, donations must reach Terry by August 1, 2008 to make the Labor Day event. Donations can be sent directly to:





Here are some answers to your recent questions:

Q: If the funds donated exceed what is needed for fuel, how will it be spent?

A: All PROJECT C-133 designated donations received by the Air Museum will be placed in a special account and used for the C-133 only. The account will be used for expenses such as restoration, maintenance, site preparation, etc.

Q: Was the C-133 in Alaska ever assigned to Travis Air Force Base?

A: We have verified that 60199 was assigned to Travis Air Force Base from February 1960 to November 1960.

Q: What social activities are planned for the C-133 arrival on Labor Day weekend?

A: We are still in the planning stages of any social activities. Watch for regular updates for more information.

Thanks to those of you who have pledged donations to this project! We are excited and optimistic about Travis AFB displaying the C-133.

We welcome any questions you may have.
