Warbird Radio Listener Paints F-105 – Want to help??

F105-792-FEATUREWARBIRD RADIO – Long time listener and friend of Warbird Radio, Kevin Korterud, wrote the other day with a great story about some “weekend work” he and friend Mike Bates have been tending to.  There’s an F-105 at the Zanesville, Ohio Municipal Airport that’s long overdue for a coat of paint.

Both Bates and Korterud decided to “do the right thing” and take on the project.  The men have paid for everything out of the own pockets and have completed all the work by themselves (and some help from their kids).  As of today, the old Thunderchief is looking new. 792 is primed, painted and nearly complete.  The goal is to make her look like she did when she rolled off the assembly line.  The last bit of work is to add the USAF marking and stencils.

Because of the high cost of these graphics, Korterud and Bates are asking for some help.  The plan is to give everyone who donates a 8.5 x 11 photograph of the F-105 once she’s completed.  If you’d like to help, you can reach them by sending an email to address below.
