For the unacquainted reader, I am an aviation nut. WWII warbirds to be more precise. I stumbled across this on one of the aviation forums I frequent.
A team of volunteers spent over 11 years and 12,000 manhours restoring a 1944 Douglas B-26B to flight status. The versatile twin engine B-26 medium bomber was an excellent design and saw action in WWII, Korea, Vietnam and the Bay of Pigs. It had many variations and played multiple roles. It was a sleek and deadly warbird.
Work on this aircraft, which came from a Forbes, Kansas museum, began in 1998 when the plane was disassembled, crated up and shipped in pieces to volunteers at the Fairfield County Airport in Ohio who had the means to restore it.
What a wonderful job they did!
