Labor of love: Affection for aviation, Piedmont Airlines draws volunteers to plane-restoration effort
SPENCER — A World War II-era DC-3 passenger plane sags in the dust of the cavernous back shop of the N.C. Transportation Museum.
The battered fuselage bears the once-familiar colors of Piedmont Airlines.
The aircraft’s major parts — wings, stabilizer, the central wing assembly and engine mounts — lie scattered in the dust.
“Potomac Pacemaker” remains stenciled in blue letters along the cabin doors.
