South Carolina pilot Barry Avent flies his World War II DC-3 C-47 cargo plane near Myrtle Beach, South Carolina in this 2008 file photo. Avent's C-47, which flew the English Channel during World War Two, will join other vintage warplanes on Thursday, July 4, 2013, in "Salute from the Shore," a patriotic flight over the South Carolina coast, replacing the usual military jets which have been grounded for public events due to federal budget cuts.
