A Lockheed F-117A 'Nighthawk' flying over the Douglas C-47 'Skytrain' pulled by the UND Football team. This DC-3 was restored and repainted as our NDANG Minnie "H" in 1998 by Bob Odegaard's team.

The 119th FIG is going to move three static aircraft soon. The F-101 'VooDoo' goes to the Devils Lake Airport. The C-47 by the fence is going to Minot, and the C-47 "Minnie H", now in Bismarck, will come to Bonanzaville.
The "Minnie H" was named for a ferry that used to operate on Devils Lake; it was reliable, but slow, The C-47 was also slow, but reliable, and the name seemed to fit. Some of the older members of the unit remember her. It seems particularly fitting to have the" Minnie H" at Bonanzaville, since she belonged to this unit.
