Clay Lacy, UAHF board member and Chairman of Clay Lacy Aviation, is shown in front of his restored Douglas DC-3C, N814CL Mainliner O'Connor. Its Douglas construction number is 34370. It was delivered to the Army Air Corps as a C-47 in October 1945 and declared surplus the following month. Standard Steel Spring Company converted it to an executive transport and registered it as NC5414. Rockwell Spring and Axle Company registered it as N5414 in 1963. North American Corporation registered it as N541Q by December 1967. The Georgia Department of Air Transportation registered it as N541G in July 1969 and used it to fly governors of Georgia, including future President Jimmy Carter. Clay Lacy restored it in 1948 vintage United Airlines livery. Its restoration was completed in June 2000 and it is flown periodically for promotion events by Mr. Lacy.
