The first two aircraft to be repainted will be the Boeing 737-200 and the Cessna 310. Both aircraft will be painted with Sherwin-Williams JCX polyester urethane commercial topcoat system.
The Boeing 737 was originally donated by Ryan International Airlines. This was Southwest Airlines’ first plane. It will be restored to Ryan International Airlines’ original livery.
The Kansas Aviation Museum has also partnered with the National Center for Aviation Training (NCAT) for the structural restoration of the Cessna 310. The plane is currently at their facility undergoing this restoration.
