Restoring Aviation History

Bringing Back Bataan

Warbird collector and pilot Rod Lewis has returned the VIP aircraft General Douglas MacArthur used during the Korean War to airworthiness, and Sherwin-Williams assisted by providing the paint.

Threshold Aviation painted the historic bird, Lockheed VC-121A Constellation 48-613, nicknamed the Bataan. 

Although parts of the Constellation's airframe are highly polished, Sherwin-Williams provided coatings for the upper surfaces, national markings, stripes and titles.  Products used were Jet Glo Express, SKYscapes General Aviation and SKYscapes General Aviation Clearcoat.
