THE BIG FISH STORY (or be careful of what you wish for)
Big Fish Air Cargo would fly anywhere and take any sized load but they wanted more exposure for their small company so, after a board meeting at the local bar, they decided that a new plane and a distinctive paint scheme would put them back in the game. They bought a derelict B-377 Guppy and then searched the world for an artist that would take the daunting job of painting it. Only one man would agree to do it, famous Italian ceiling painter Mario Fishgumbanio. Mario was shipped here, along with a load of fish, on a Big Fish DC 3 and he quickly took the project to heart working night and day for a year before finally completing the gigantic paint job.

As it turned out Mario spent more money on paint than the plane was worth so after it was done they fired Mario and he was rushed back to Italy and his ceilings. Embarrassed by the extravagant paint job and ruined from the cost they stored the plane in a secluded hangar so no one would ever see it again. Recently the plane was discovered covered with years of dust and bird droppings in a large run down hangar in New Jersey and brought out in the light for all of us to enjoy (?).
