WARBIRD RADIO – On this month’s Wings Over New Zealand LIVE Show our guest is Paul McSweeny of Pioneer Aero, one of the famous warbird restoration workshops at Ardmore, in Auckland, New Zealand. With a history of top quality rebuilds of WWII fighters and other aircraft, they have an exciting number of projects in the workshop right now. These include four Curtiss P-40 Kittyhawk projects all being restored to fly, plus a Bell P-39 Aircobra, and two Vought Kingfishers. And they are also working on a Japanese B5N2 Kate for the museum at Pearl Harbor, and soon they will also be receiving two Kawasaki Ki-61 Tony projects. Pioneer also perform maintenance for many other airworthy warbird aircraft around Ardmore and New Zealand, and there’s always something interesting there.
