DDW Pic 12. Walt Disney's Airplane
Walt Disney's Airplane
This picture was taken back in March of 2006 in Hollywood Studios. I actually took this shot from the back of the seating area at the Lights, Motors, Action! stunt show. The plane is on display as part of the Backlot Tour at the park. It is a 1963 Gulfstream that was owned by Walt himself. This is the plane that was used to locate the land in central Florida that was to eventually become Walt Disney World. This event took place on November 22nd, 1963, and soon after Walt landed, he was informed that President John F. Kennedy had been assassinated. If you look closely, you will see that the tail number for the plane is 234MM. You probably guessed......the MM is for Mickey Mouse!
