Meet the "Honor Crew "of "Beach City Baby!"
The inside of the cabin of our C-53-DO Skytrooper is a restored time capsule that honors the memory and legacy of our aircraft. On display will be many forms of the variations of it's interior and the different roles it played in WWII. While displaying these variations the aircraft's ten passenger seats and four stretchers are being restored to honor fourteen sponsored veterans and their service to our great nation during this time period.

In fulfilling our mission of history, remembrance & education, each aircraft seat & stretcher will honor the name of a veteran chosen by the seat sponsor.
Our C-53's "Honor Crew" is as follows:
