MIG23 transportation help!

The Russians are coming! The Russians are coming!!!

The Pueblo Weisbrod Aircraft Museum (PWAM) and the Pueblo Historical Aircraft Society (PHAS)has been given the opportunity to bring a Soviet MIG23 to the Museum MUCH earlier than planned!

  As the U.S. was entering the First Gulf War , this type of plane, the MIG23, was shot down by the F15C our Museum will have on display beginning June 2, 2018.

The plane, which is currently at the Wright-Patterson Air Force Base, OH  has been placed on loan to our Museum by the National Museum of the Air Force.  This is a piece of Cold War history that cannot be allowed to go by the wayside! It is currently sitting in a hangar at Wright-Patt and we MUST go after this plane before it is lost!
PWAM/PHAS must pay the costs for disassembly of the aircraft in preparation for transport, loading fees (including rental of cranes, and forklifts) transportation fees (including the trucks and trailers, and also Pilot cars as the load will be oversized), and permit fees. 
The estimated cost of the transport of the MiG-23 is approximately $45,000.00. The Museum is basically an all Volunteer and all donation ran
Museum... Hence, this is where we need YOUR help!!!!
