PT-728 On a Trailer, En Route to Lake Erie

PT-728 Update

On August 17th, Liberty Aviation Museum's WWII Pt-728 Thomcat emerged from the museum boathouse en route to Lake Erie! Our PT boat is beginning to test all of the boat's onboard systems. Once those items check out, sea trials will go on; and of course, final US Coast Guard certifications. The Liberty Aviation Museum's WWII Vosper PT boat, the Pt-728 Thomcat is expected to be in full service sometime in the Spring of 2017 offering dockside tours & PT boat ride experiences. And at that time next spring, a formal dedication ceremony will be held and open to the public.

Currently, the PT boat is not available for public viewing while testing is going on away from the Liberty Aviation Museum at the Erie-Ottawa International Airport Authority in Port Clinton, Ohio. We will do our best to bring you images and video during the time that the boat is out of the public viewing area. We will announce a location & time for viewing the boat should we have an opportunity once all testing is complete. In the off season, the PT-728 Thomcat will return to the Liberty Aviation Museum in our boathouse. If you have questions, please email marketing@libertyaviationmuseum.org or call (419)732-0234
