Fairchild 24W-40 Restoration

This Fairchild 24W-40 was completely restored by Mike Huffman in 1980 for a client. Featuring a 165-hp Warner Scarab engine, glass roll-up windows, and roomy cabin, the Fairchild 24 was a classy airplane flown by movies stars during the 1940s.

In late 2006, the current owners completed another partial restoration due to the aircraft having been partially submerged in rising waters from a 2004 hurricane that hit North Carolina. With a fresh engine overhaul, new interior, new radios, and new instruments, the aircraft is now as good as new. They have even created a 3D model of the airplane for use with Microsoft Flight Simulator.
