The CAF's beloved C-45 "Bucket of Bolts" is one of the most popular airplanes in our fleet. Each year the CAF's C-45 Expeditor, "Bucket of Bolts," travels to approximately 30 tour stops with the CAF AirPower History Tour. The "Bucket" is a popular ride airplane at every stop providing an economical price point most people can afford. Many of the riders, age 5 through 105, are people who have never flown in an airplane. In fact, last year the airplane flew 200 ride flights. Everyone who flies in the airplane becomes an immediate fan. A few years ago the aircraft sponsors spent money to refurbish the interior of the airplane, but it has been years since the airplane has been painted. Please help us raise money toward the restoration and painting of this iconic aircraft, preserving its legacy as the most popular touring airplane in the CAF.
