Post The Widows Web - P-61 Black Widow Restoration
http://www.maam.org/p61.html
This Black Widow crashed into a mountainside in New Guinea back in WWII. It was recovered and is being restored in hopes that it will one day fly again. Pretty interesting read. I love the P-61.

Ugh, don't eve think that! :shock:

It has been my favorite since I first read about in in grade school and built the Monogram kit. Beautiful aircraft, it is amazing how they can restore it.
