HAGERSTOWN, Md. - A 55-year-old military cargo plane is winging its way home to Hagerstown from Wyoming.

The Hagerstown Aviation Museum says the Fairchild C-119 "Flying Boxcar" left Greybull, Wyo., Wednesday morning and is expected to arrive at Hagerstown Regional Airport early Sunday afternoon.

The restored aircraft was built in Hagerstown for the Royal Canadian Air Force in 1953 and used in the 1989 Steven Spielberg movie, "Always." It was donated to the museum.

Museum officials say the plane is stopping in Grand Isle, Neb.; Ottumwa, Iowa; and Warrenton, Va., before arriving in Hagerstown.
