Sikorsky JRS-1 Update – Warbird Radio LIVE! – Wednesday
WARBIRD RADIOÂ -Â The world’s only surviving Sikorsky JRS-1 has safely arrived to it’s new home.Â TheÂ National Air and Space Museum moved the historic Pearl Harbor veteran to the newly constructedÂ Mary Baker Engen Restoration Hangar located behind the Steven F.Â Udvar-Hazy Center.Â The newÂ hangar will soon become the museum’s premier restoration facility.Â Museum staff members areÂ quick to point out that no “opening” date has been issued and for now the public is not permitted to tour the facility.
Once open museum visitors will have a birds eye view of restoration activities taking place inside the cavernous hangar.Â The Sikorsky JRS-1 is one of the first (and rarest) of all the aircraft in the museum’s collection to make it’s way to the new restoration hangar.Â The JRS-1 has never been on public displayÂ but thanks to the new facilities ingenious designÂ that will soon change.Â Â For more information on the JRS-1 click on the Quick Link below.
