Restoration on U-3B "Blue Canoe" Enters Final Stages

Restoration on U-3B "Blue Canoe" Enters Final Stages

Museum restoration staff, including some of our dedicated volunteers, is putting the U-3B "Blue Canoe" back together. The restoration has been a multi-year project that included help from Middle Georgia Technical College students and instructors. Once restoration is complete, the aircraft will go on display in Hangar One.

The museum's U-3 was built in 1961 and was stationed in Nebraska, Arizona, Pennsylvania, California, Montana and New Hampshire before being assigned to Robins Air Force Base from 1974 to 1977. After its tour at Robins, the aircraft was sent to Alaska and then finally Florida where it was retired from U.S. Air Force service in 1985. The next year it came to the Museum of Aviation, where it sat outside at the mercy of the elements for over two decades.
