The Commemorative Air Force Lake Superior Squadron 101 has been planning this move for months.

And on Monday, it happened. Two WWII era planes made the trip from Duluth to Superior.

The two Consolidated PBY Catalinas left the hangar at the Duluth airport, and were carefully trucked to the Bong Airport in Superior.

Kevin Parks, the Lake Superior Squadron 101 Unit Leader, said, "Both airplanes were built in 1945. They came off the assembly line at the same time.They did everything. They did reconnaissance, air and sea rescue. Some squadrons painted them black so they could fly night missions."

The black one will be outside the airport. The blue one is being outfitted to fly again.
