Easily spotted off I-4. The plane has been uprighted but did not see G Willie as pilot. He used to ride on top many years ago.

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 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.
