We are in the process of restoring this original P40. It was in a mid air collision over Florida with another P40 while flying formation, cutting off it’s tail and killing the pilot.
It was in a swamp from 1944-1986. The Curtiss volunteers are restoring as much as possible.
The 1928 Travel/Air 2000 was received as a complete basket case and has been completely restored by eight OX-5 members.
This bi-plane was signed off by Walter Beach on October 23, 1928.
We are now restoring this 1930 Fledgling open cockpit biplane with a 170 horsepower Curtiss Challenger engine.
