Guns For Diamond Lil Fund

December 31, 2006 11:03 am

The Commemorative Air Force’s B-24A/LB-30 Liberator Diamond Lil is in the process of returning to it’s original B-24A configuration. A running thread on the subject can be found on the Warbird Information Exchange here Gary Austin of the CAF is responsible for performing this conversion and has been generous with his time by providing a detailed overview of every major step completed so far. (if you want to catch up quickly, a archive has been created here. With her conversion back to bomber configuration she is in need or armament. While her replica bombs have been acquired, she is in need of 5 replica .50 machine guns. These replicas cost roughly $900 each. One has been acquired by the CAF and 2 more have been funded by members of the Warbird Information Exchange. A fourth replica is halfway to being fully funded. But that still leave at least one and a half replicas that needs funding. If you would like to help then check out this thread and make a donation. All amounts are welcome.

Wings of Eagles Back in the News

December 27, 2006 7:36 am

The Wings of Eagles Discovery Center (former National Warplane Museum) in Elmira, NY is back in the news today in an article in the Elmira Star-Gazette. The museum, made famous for its world class airshows in the 80s and 90s and its flying warbird fleet, fell on hard times within the past few years after losses stemming from poor airshow and museum attendence. The eventual result of these losses was the sale of it’s B-17 Flying Fortress “Fuddy Duddy”, Consolidated PBY-6A Catalina, and Beech C-45.

In the article today, a plan for the future is outlined for the museum which includes a greater focus on space exploration exhibits and incorporation of the glider school formerly based at the Schweitzer factory on the other side of the airport.

There was no mention of rebuilding the Wings of Eagles Airshows, so it can be assumed that the museum is plotting a course with far less of an emphasis on warbirds than science for the future.

Some More Martin Mars Effort Posts

6:27 pm

As mentioned in an earlier article, the Glenn L. Martin Museum based at Martin State Airport in Maryland are seeking to raise funds to acquire one of the last Martin Mars flying boats from TimberWest of Vancouver, B.C.

The bidding ends on January 31st, 2007, so the timeframe to raise funds is very short. Hopefully word will get out and help!

Dan Rodricks of the Baltimore Sun showed support with this editorial this past week (December 17).

The Baltimore Examiner also shows some support with an article from December 19th.

As always, please visit the Martin Mars page at the Glenn L. Martin Museum to show your support.

A Little Press for a Little Known Museum in NM

5:47 pm

There’s some press today in the Las Cruces Sun-News about the little-known War Eagles Air Museum in New Mexico. Though the museum is a bit out of the way, it has a collection that can be envied by any mainstream museum out there.

Created from the collection of the late John MacGuire and Betty MacGuire, the museum has an outstanding collection and a terrific facility. It is well worth a visit if you are ever out in the El Paso area.

The article talks about using the facility as a unique venue for events… so if you are planning a shin-dig in the near future, make sure to put the museum on your list!

P-51D Down in Rexburg, ID

December 22, 2006 12:23 pm

Yesterday (Thursday) the unfortunate news of the crash of North American P-51D Mustang N252RM on Highway 20 in Rexburg, ID was brought to our attention. Thankfully John Bagley, the pilot, was not significantly injured in the crash and escaped wit cuts and bruises.

It was reported that the engine failed immediately after departure and left Bagley with no other option than to attempt to land it in the median of the highway. As seen in news footage, the damage is extensive, but time will tell if this aircraft will become a candidate for restoration.

See more on the crash from KIFI Local News 8 in Idaho Falls here including video.

Read more about the plane involved at the Warbird Registry listing here.
