Walt Disney's Company Plane
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.
