You can go to www.militaryaviationmuseum.org as well to see two hangers full of airplanes.

Neither website include his reproduction aircraft, the P-26D Peashooter and Hawker Fury I. Not updated I guess. "Yeagan's" museum is near the top of my "must visit" list.

Chuck has a museum? Just kidding. :)

It's fantastic, the only problem is keeps getting better, so whenever you come to visit, it'll be even better the following year. :) It's in a beautiful area (Just south of Virginia Beach), and it's close to NAS Oceana (they have great stuff on display there too), and about 2.5 hours drive from DC, so a visit to Hazy and NASM should be added to make that a nice worthwhile trip from the west coast.

If you look at the live feed on the museum website, the Fury can be seen aft of the Hurricane in the feed of the Air Force side. And the Peashooter is in the lower left corner in the feed of the Navy side. Neither one has flown since being reassembled at the museum. A little hard to see at the moment as the lights are lowered for the night.

does anyone have a definitive list of how many A-20s and P-38s he owns? I know Japanese Sandman. Strange he doesn't have a P-47, certainly not for want of them being available.

sorry for all the posts: http://www.aerovintage.com/b25news3.htm

states he has an A-20 for trade. can anyone give a s/n? can we infer from this that he has others. I seem to recall him stating he had several A-20 airframes.

Well, add to the list(s) at least 3 currently under restoration at Meier Motors Germany.

1. A Buchon being converted to DB (recreating an early G-model?, ex N109FF)

http://www.meiermotors.com/de/aircraft/ ... n/130.html

2. An original Bf 109 G (-6 ?)

http://www.meiermotors.com/en/aircraft/ ... 109-g.html

3. A Fiat G.55 conversion using a Fiat G.59

http://www.meiermotors.com/en/aircraft/ ... auro-.html

P.S. The english version of the pages seems not to work / be installed

There has been rumours of converting the new built Flugwerk FW 190 D-9 (ex Tom Blair) Black 12 to Jumo 213. But it seems this project is postponed / on the backburner at least at the moment (or even cancelled at all?).

These are not complete airframes as such, but incomplete collections of parts, some of which have identities. In the case of the A-20 / Bostons, three have come out, from a set of <10 recoveries already; how many more can be made from what's left? Guess away.
