The Colling’s Foundation has acquired a F6F-3 Hellcat and the restoration to flying status will occur at American Aero.
Congrats to American Aero Services for winning the Golden Wrench award at Oshkosh 2012 for the outstanding restoration of the A-36 Apache. Hopefully this same award will be won in 5-6 years when the FW-190 is airborne.
