Museum of Aviation dedicates new engine display
The Museum held a celebration event to showcase the acquisition of a fully working engine for its C-7A "Caribou".
WARNER ROBINS, Georgia (41NBC/WMGT) – The Museum of Aviation received a special exhibit for one of its older aircraft.
It held a celebration event to showcase the acquisition of a fully working engine for its C-7A “Caribou”, a plane the museum has had since 1985.
Nick Tcherniavsky is a member of the C7 Caribou Association. It’s a group of veterans dedicated to teaching others about the C7. He says the new display is important for showing the legacy of the Vietnam War.
“It is a time period in our history that does need to be preserved and there should be…really some visual things taught about it and I think that what they’ve done here at the museum is a very good start on that,” said Tcherniavsky.
The museum also set up a display next to the open cargo bay of the plane to showcase objects that would have been found on board, along with a painting showcasing the aircraft in action.
