AirCorps Aviation in Minnesota has announced that they are assembling the P-51C "Thunderbird" N5528N for owner Warren Pietsch. The historic 1949 Bendix race winner will restored to its bright blue racing livery. Famed actor and pilot Jimmy Stewart funded his friend Joe DeBona to build up and race this highback P-51 Mustang. DeBona won the Bentix at a speed of 470 MPH!
For more on racing Mustangs and Thunderbird read the article at This Day In Aviation here.
We highly recommend the book Wet Wings and Drop Tanks for more history and photos on the transcontinental air races.

Last year we picked up this classic Revell Douglas DC-7 model from a buddy. It was started by someone and our boy and I are continuing the build. If the decals have held up this will be finished with a United Airlines scheme. Looking forward to mounting it on a stand to have a vintage airliner in the collection.

|Mid America Flight Museum's Executive in Texas|
For the 500th post on this blog I want to feature one of my favorite airplanes. The Spartan 7W Executive. Its art deco lines, polished metal and round motor just put it in a class all its own. When biplanes were propionate Spartan rolls this out of the hangar and impresses the aviation industry.
Follow this link to see the Spartan Executive survivors.
