If you’re interested in taking a Pearl Harbor tour, the Pacific Aviation Museum has a new reason to visit!
The Pacific Aviation Museum and the Hawaii Military Vehicle Restoration Association have teamed up to bring life back into an old war bird. The Douglas C-47 known as “Cheeky Charlie” earned her nickname while flying missions in the Philippines during WWII for the United States Army Air Force (USAAF). She then flew for the Australian Government, and more recently was flying cargo inter-island for Kamaka Air.
Restoration projects like this are what makes Pearl Harbor’s Pacific Aviation Museum such an amazing place to visit! Not only are there displays of planes and helicopters representing the last 70 years of military aviation, you can visit an active restoration shop and see the care and effort it takes to return these birds to glory.
If you’re visiting Hawaii and staying on a neighbor island, we offer a variety of island hopping packages from Maui, Kauai, & the Big Island which include a Pearl Harbor Tour.
