Project “Freedom One”

Scotty was thrilled to have been able to recently participate in a special project in Tucson, AZ at the PIMA Aircraft & Aerospace Museum. Joe Fernandez from Superior Shine Auto Detailing in Arcadia, CA put together a small team of talented detailers to come together and help preserve an important piece of history with the help of some amazing sponsors.  A Boeing C-137, specifically 58-6971 Model 707-153 USAF VC-137B was used in the US Air Force.  This aircraft became known as “Freedom One” after serving in the return of the American hostages from Tehran, Iran in 1981 and again to transport US POW’s back from Operation Desert Storm. This aircraft had been sitting in the hot Arizona sun for close to a decade and the paint had definitely seen better days. So the assembled team converged to tackle restoring the parts of the plane that were salvageable in order to preserve as much of the original paint as possible. After a week of polishing the plane looked great and only needed sections repainted instead of the entire plane saving the museum precious money and preserving the original paint. This was truly the opportunity of a lifetime.
