Volunteers are refurbishing the sole prototype of Lockheed's stretched C-141B transport at the Marietta Museum of History's Aviation Wing in Marietta, Ga., former Lockheed employee and restoration volunteer Bill Paden told the Daily Report, March 15, 2011. Designated YC-141B, the aircraft first flew in March 1977. It languished for many years in Lockheed Martin's boneyard, stripped of its wings and pilfered for parts.
