Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered charity.
The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.
To return the C54 Skymaster to flight we will need to dismantle, inspect and rebuild the four engines.
Each engine weighs 1.5 tons.
We have a stand which has our "spare" engine fitted to it, but our assessment is that while it was probably fir for purpose in the past in the modern world the risk is too great.
We have been offered a specially built stand which will allow the engines to be rotated through 180 degrees to enable them to be safely dismantled.
