Needed for C-97 "Angel of Deliverance"
On 4 June, the C-97 called
"Angel of Deliverance" was returning home to Reading,

Historic Foundation (BAHF) is now seeking donations toward the
replacement cost of an R-4360 engine and spare parts needed to keep
the aircraft flying in the future. Please visit their website at
for more information about how you can help.
