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.
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. Click here

re-restoration after the hurricane.
