Issue Fifteen - July
/ August 2007
Dave Groh turned the
remnants of another PT-17 project into a finely restored
work of art. Greg Morehead caught up with him to shoot
some spectacular photos of the finished product and Groh
relates the restoration story.
For four decades the
Commemorative Air Force has been operating a
Consolidated LB-30 “Liberator.” Over the winter, crew
chief Gary Austin and a number of volunteers transformed
the aircraft back into the bomber that it was when it
left the assembly line in 1941.
Although it was the most produced
American combat aircraft, few B-24 Liberators escaped
the scrap man. Warbird Digest briefly surveys the intact
survivors and provides an interesting look at the source
of nearly half of the existing airframes.
If you love the Hawker Sea Fury, you have
heard of the Sanders family. Almost four decades have
passed since the Hawker fighter entered the lives of
Dennis and Brian Sanders as a result of their father’s
passion. Today the brothers keep the legacy alive and
continue to improve and operate the type. Scott Germain
brings Warbird Digest readers the complete story.
The Legacy Flight
Over forty years ago a flying model of a
PT-19 planted the seeds for a project that would come to
fruition in 2005. Jim Russell brings the moving story of
a dream fulfilled.
