Engine Check

Engine check on “What’s Up Doc” at the Palm Springs Air Museum. A C-47B that was built in 1944. Currently painted to commemorate the D-Day Invasion, this aircraft served the US Army Air Force, the US Navy and the Royal Air Force during World War II. It went on to serve in the Belgian Air Force, the French Air Force and finally the Israeli Air Force. Aviation artist Stan Stokes painted the Bugs Bunny logo nose art at the Air Museum.

Currently “What’s Up Doc” flies regularly at the Palm Springs Air Museum carrying museum visitors, skydivers, and on a busy air show schedule. So after this maintenance you too can check out “What’s Up Doc”!
