Our L-19 “Bird Dog” was recently moved to a heated hangar. It’s restoration will be a winter project for friends from Flight Base Operations and volunteers from Kalitta Air. We really appreciate their interest in returning this plane to it’s original appearance and flying condition. It has been a museum display “in restoration” for over 20 years. We are anxious to see what it looks like with both wings attached!

The L-19 “Bird Dog” was used as a spotter plane in Korea and Vietnam because it could be flown at a low altitude and slow speed.

Check back for photos as the restoration gets underway.
