F4U-1 “Birdcage”

While at the National Naval Aviation Museum last week for my TACAMO event (see my facebook page), we got a behind the scenes look at the restoration shops and I shot these photos of an F4U-1 “Birdcage” salvaged from Lake Michigan that is undergoing restoration. For those interested, the museum gift shop has a great video of the salvage of the Lake Michigan warbirds and why they are there in the first place. https://navalaviation.com/books-media/movies/heroes-on-deck-100332.html. I hope you “Bugsair” builders appreciate my sacrifice for you!!

And don’t forget – when you go to Pensacola, visit Bobe’s Hobby House. You’ll be glad you did!!
