The Wings Over New Zealand Show – deHavilland Hornet Restorer Corin McCrae – Episode 20

WARBIRD RADIO – Dave Homewood and Grant McHerron are back with a new broadcast.  The guys are joined this month by deHavilland Hornet restorer Corin McCrae.  In this episode of The Wings Over New Zealand Live Show, Dave and Grant return after a long break, and as well as a round up of news and happenings from New Zealand and Australia, Dave also talks with guest Corin McCrae of Aerowood.  Corin’s business, Aerowood, is all about crafting the wooden parts required to rebuild or repair classic wooden aeroplanes. Unlike many companies rebuilding wooden aeroplanes however Aerowood uses computer CAD technology and a CNC automated cutting machine.  Personally Corin has created wooden parts for all sorts of projects from Tiger Moths to SE5a’s. But most famously Corin has been involved in rebuilding the wooden structure of several de Havilland Mosquitoes as flying projects. Two of them now flying in the USA – KA114 with Jerry Yagen’s Military Aircraft Museum, and TV959 with Paul Allen’s Flying Heritage Collection. The third flying Mosquito project, Rod Lewis’s PZ474, should hopefully fly sometime in 2018.  And Aerowood has another exciting upcoming project, working with Pioneer Aero Restorations Ltd of Ardmore, and that is the de Havilland Sea Hornet TT193 project that is planned to be restored to fly too. He talks about all these projects and more.

SHOWTIME is 9pm ET / Tuesday / January 30th 2018 / Podcast will follow

UPDATE – Beach City Baby C-53 – Warbird Radio LIVE! – Episode 638

WARBIRD RADIO – Jason Capra joins Matt Jolley with an update on the Beach City Baby C-53 restoration project.  Mr. Capra is the President of Vintage Wings, Incorporated a Pennsylvania 501C3 non profit corporation that owns the historic C-53.  The airframe is believed to be one of a handful of aircraft surviving today used in Operation Torch.  The historic operation opened the North Africa campaign of WWII and served as America’s test bed for fighting the “new” war.  The “Baby” played a vital role in transporting leadership to the theater and abroad.  Since Mr. Capra’s last visit, some major progress has been made on the “Baby” and we’re looking forward to hearing the news on this episode.  As always, your calls and comments are welcome.  Just use the contact information posted below.
