The Save the Skymaster project comes with so much that can be learnt by Veterans and Engineering Graduates, with Volunteers benefitting too. From Hydraulics to Avionics and the incredible engine capacity and how to tackle corrosion repair. Anyone willing to help and learn at the same time is welcome to come through to be an integral part of the team that will actually witness this magnificent C-54 Skymaster back in the sky where she belongs.
