Walt Disney's Company Plane

When Walt began his searches for his Epcot project, it was necessary to purchase a company corporate jet in order to fly and look for potential areas. It's said that the final choice of Florida was made the day of the assasination of president Kennedy when the plane landed after hearing the news in November 1963. This historical plane is currently on display at Disney's Hollywood Studios park at Walt Disney World. The parks logo on the plane have been added after Walt's death.
