New Year - New Aircraft Restorations for 2013

Happy New Year!  It is 2013 and as I look back on 2012 I think back on the Warbird and vintage aircraft restorations that returned to the air this year.  The highlights for me were...

The de Havilland Mosquito completed for Jerry Yagen from the shops at AvSpecs.  The photos that are being posted and printed just makes your heart skip.

The Fighter Collection flew their in house restoration of the Razorback P-47.

The Spokane based Pemberton family flew their Waco Cabin.  The custom cabin Waco's are one of my favorites and the Pemberton's turned out a beautifully restored example.

A rare, little know type is the Davis D-1 that rolled out of Terry Wallace's hangar.  This orange parasol sure has slick lines.  
 
For the new year in 2013 I am excited about...
 
This Curtiss Jenny that is shaping up for the Candler Field Museum in Georgia.
Check in on the Jenny project here...


The P-82 in Georgia also continues to make good progress.  Will we see major components mated soon?

At Midwest Aero we could see another Mustang take to the skies as well as the challenge of a new aircraft type in the shop.  A bf-109 to be restored to flight!

So... stay tuned here as I hope to keep posting on the latest news in Warbird and vintage aircraft restorations.
