P-61 'Black Widow' Recovery and Restoration Project

There are four P-61 night fighters in existence, worldwide.
Three are on static display and sadly incapable of flight.
The fourth 'Black Widow' is the subject of an epic
recovery and restoration project conceived and
led by Eugene "Pappy" Strine, co-founder of the
Mid-Atlantic Air Museum. 


The journey began at a wartime crash site
on a jungle-cloaked mountaintop in
New Guinea, over two decades ago.  It
will end when this last surviving P-61
does what its three sisters can no longer do...

THIS 'BLACK WIDOW' WILL FLY!

Join us as we continue this ongoing journey.  Follow along as we enter...
