Those who drive past Cuba, Mo, along I-44, will spot an airplane standing guard at Cuba Municipal Airport. This C-12 aircraft was transferred through the Federal Donation Program, a program operated by the Missouri State Agency for Surplus Property (MOSASP).
When a C-12 aircraft became available, the City of Cuba jumped on the opportunity to have a plane displayed at the city airport. The city was granted the craft in June, 2017, which meant the hard part began. Since the plane was located in North Carolina, this meant a team had to tackle the daunting task of bringing the craft back to Missouri.
