Before he made the deal to buy it, he said, his wife told him if he bought one more airplane, "I'll divorce you." He did — and so did she. Gomez, 47, from Miami Springs, rescued and restored the former Eastern Airlines plane from what appeared to be certain doom at a St. Paul, Minn. airfield. "It sat outside for 32 years," Gomez said, never a good thing in a snowy state like Minnesota. The DCs were the last of the huge piston-engine planes before jets.
