This is a summary of what I have learned about the potential move of N199AB/61999 from Anchorage to Travis AFB. The Jimmie Doolittle Museum has received a letter of intent to transfer the airplane. Two big issues are gathering funds to repaint the airplane in military markings and to pay for the fuel. Assuming that those are accomplished, the concept is to have the airplane arrive during a Labor Day air show at Travis. There are still lots of hoops to be jumped through to make it happen, but there are good prospects for the last airworthy C-133 to go home. 61999 was assigned to Travis from Feb to Nov 1960.
