Some of what we’re paying attention to…

11 June 2020

National Naval Aviation Museum

History Up Close series playlist on Facebook—see the on-going restoration work (especially the rare example of the “Birdcage” F4U-1 Corsair); the Dauntless and the scars from its daring Battle of Midway flight, and more. Many of the aircraft featured in the NNAM’s playlist were recovered by A and T Recovery and restored at their restoration facility.

The People’s Mosquito Project

Completing mould A’s rear half by John and Ross of Retrotech

This is a fascinating and important project to build a de Havilland Mosquito from the molds up—an original Mosquito built decades after World War II! The big difference is the aircraft will fly and become part of the public trust in the UK—not privately owned as are the others. Recently, a special drive to fund the £100,000 required to construct the fuselage and £80,000 has been reached in a short amount of time. The interest is out there and you can take part!

Airships: North Pole Quest | The Game

Max Pinucci, the brilliant and unique artist with especial interest in airships, has begun a month long Kickstarter campaign for his concept which places the contestants in the year 1924 racing to the unreached and unknown North Pole—one of the few blank spaces on the world’s map at the time—after selecting one of six historic 3-D airships players lead their crews through weather and happenstance as they strive to win the race. Get into the campaign and get into the game! Airships: North Pole Quest | The Game
