OUR RESTORATIONS & PROJECTS

OUR RESTORATIONS & PROJECTS

WE’RE WWII AIRCRAFT FABRICATORS, CRAFTSMEN, & ARTISTS

RETURNING SOME OF THE RAREST PIECES OF AMERICAN HISTORY TO THE AIR

It’s safe to say that the aircraft we restore are a good representation of what we love to do – resurrect historic aircraft of any condition and turn them into period correct works of art that are meant to be flown.

P-51D “Sierra Sue II”

Sierra Sue II is a World War II combat veteran P-51D-20NA. She was in very nearly original configuration at the beginning of the restoration.  No “jump seat” behind the regular pilot seat has ever been installed. We believe the airframe was one of the most intact, original P-51s known…

redtail p51 restoration

P-51C Red Tail CA

The famous Red Tail P-51C, one of the most important educational tools of the Commemorative Air Force, sustained damage during a wheels-up landing in Dallas on February 3rd, 2016. It is very satisfying for those of us at AirCorps Aviation to be able to say she is back in the air…

Harvard Mark IV 405

The Harvard series of trainers were British Commonwealth Air Forces versions of the North American Aviation AT-6 Texan trainer used during and after World War II. North American delivered its first Harvards in October 1938 to the Royal Air Force (RAF) and Royal Canadian Air Force (RCAF).
