The Air Force Taketh Away

Years of effort and expense have been invested in restoring several wonderful aircraft by dedicated General Aviation buffs. The B-17 Memphis Belle, an SR-71 in Minnesota and most recently, this F-82 Twin Mustang restored by the Commemorative Air Force.

The Commemorative Air Force (CAF) is dismantling and returning a rare North American F–82 termed the Twin Mustang to the National Museum of the Air Force in Dayton, Ohio, following the rejection of a settlement offer from the CAF.

The volunteers all thought they had a deal and did their best to preserve history.  Changing the rules, after the fact , will keep others from tackling worthy projects like these in the future.
