Miss Montana lifts off for the first time since 2001 for its first flight after an extensive year-long restoration on Sunday at the Missoula International Airport. The DC-3 performed a series of maneuvers during the test, including a low pass over an emotional crowd gathered at the Museum of Mountain Flying. The plane will take part in the 75th anniversary of the D-Day invasion in Normandy, France. The plane was piloted by Jeff Whitesell, with co-pilot Frank Moss and chief mechanic Randy Schonemann.
