Boeing KC-97G Stratofreighter

In 2018, the I-X Center’s Summit Racing Equipment I-X Piston Powered Auto-Rama debuted Cleveland’s largest and most powerful Piston Powered vehicle  with 14,000 horsepower, 112 pistons and 224 spark plugs.

The Boeing KC-97G Stratofreighter, arrived at the I-X Center on Friday, June 23rd, 2017 after spending almost 40 years at the Military Aircraft Storage and Disposition Center at the Davis-Monthan Air Force Base in Arizona. Since its arrival at the I-X Center, more than 800 hours of work has been done to restore the outside of the plane to its natural state.

To date, there are only 24 KC-97G aircrafts displayed throughout the world. When you arrive at the I-X Center, you’re greeted by the aircraft as it sits on the South Lawn of our property.  The uniqueness of seeing this plane up close and personal is very rare, so be sure to snap a photo!
