Fantasy of Flight

G-Willie, the hapless airplane pilot dummy, was stolen from his perch, where he dangled from the tail of the Fantasy of Flight's iconic plane for about a decade!

[Scott Kjeer, 07/25/2007]

The DC-3 has been turned around and is now displayed conventionally. G-Willie, or another dummy like him, now sits in the cockpit doorway.

Fantasy of Flight promo plane crash. Fantasy of Flight Crash Victim

The most eye catching form of advertising we have is a DC-3 that looks as if it has crashed on the side of Interstate 4 (runs between Tampa and Orlando), many people have thought it was a real plane crash. We also have a pilot with a parachute on his back hanging from the tailwheel debating whether to jump or not. We are looking for a handful of fake gators to put on the ground under him. We dress him like Santa, a leprechaun, the Easter Bunny, and a pilgrim during the appropriate times of the year.
