This aircraft has combat history with the US in the Pacific, the French Air Force in the French-Indochina War (old first photo is of her), the CIA in Thailand, and the Whittington Brothers (of NASCAR fame) “fundraising” efforts.
Aircraft was undergoing a decade long restoration before we acquired her. The fuselage was taken down to bare bones & all corrosion was removed. The upgraded OnMark Ring spar was removed & reworked. The new skins are currently drilled out & awaiting installation. The airframe is currently in a jig, that is included with the purchase.
The tail cone has been completed, including new hardware, ADs complied with, and was ready for paint. It is currently in a shipping jig, that is included.
The wings will require some work. The spars are flyable. This is one of the few nonflying A26s with *GOOD SPARS*! All bladders, hoses, and wiring has been removed from the wings. We have removed the rear nacelles so the wings can be transported either flat or vertical, without needing oversize permits. Wings will fit within a conex box.
Vertical & horizontal have been stripped & received some work
The hydraulic pack was removed as one piece and is still together.
There is no firewall forward, other than cowl flaps
There was a hangar full of parts removed. Almost everything is labeled as to what it is & where it goes. We have condensed most of it into pallet boxes.
Most of the OnMark interior appears to be here including the passenger seats, and window frames. Nose cone included is the original nose converted for cargo.
There is a cutout for the instrument panel but no gauges
We have logs/paperwork/FAA bill of sale for the aircraft. There is also some historical documentaion which includes the original bid sheet, when the aircraft was auctioned surplus from Clark Field in the Philippines.
The items I know to be missing are: the rudder, pilot & copilot seats, nose gear leg, one of the main landing gear legs, & the wheels. These parts do exist & can be found on the market with relative ease.
