Grumman Mohawk Gunship flew in Four Wars. (8/12/2017) – Several years ago a historic WWII Douglas C-47 Dakota Skytrain that flew in Normandy on D-Day in 1944, and one of only five left today, was delivered to the G-Star Studios (www.gstarstudios.com) back lot owned by the G-Star School of the Arts for Film, Animation and Performing Arts (www.gstarschool.org) in Palm Springs, Florida. It has appeared in several movies and numerous videos, commercials and TV productions. This Wednesday, August 16th it will be joined as a permanent fixture on the motion picture studios’ back lot with a Vietnam-era Grumman Mohawk gunship airplane that saw action in Vietnam, The Gulf War, Afghanistan and Iraq. The Mohawk will be towed on its own wheels from the Lantana Airport six miles north on S. Congress Ave. to the G-Star School of the Arts in Palm Springs, three blocks south of Forest Hill Blvd. at approximately 11 AM. The plane is being donated by Paul Pefley, owner of Mohawk Technologies. Transportation provided by Kauff’s Towing.
