An artifact of American aviation history is making Hawaii its home.

A bomber aircraft known as the Swamp Ghost arrived at the Pacific Aviation Museum at Pearl Harbor on Wednesday morning.

It’s history dates back to WWII.

It was given the nickname Swamp Ghost because it disappeared when it crashed in Papua New Guinea in 1942.

It’s nine-member crew survived, but the aircraft was never seen again until 30 years later in 1972.

Now the Swamp Ghost will be restored. It is a project that will take several years and millions of dollars.

Once that’s done, it will be permanently displayed at the Pacific Aviation Museum.
