I usually distance myself from anything kickstarter but a nice birdy shared with me this project that got me interested:
"Last year an iconic piece of history was discovered lying in an aircraft boneyard in Wisconsin. It was the Douglas C-47 That's All, Brother - the airplane that led the massed paratroop drop on D-Day. The Commemorative Air Force (CAF) needs your help to rescue and restore this proud old airplane! Your contribution is tax-deductible to the extent allowed by law."
