And this below link from the forum. Which is not related to the magazine but worthy cause none the less.
I'm thrilled to announce that Ash Briggs and myself have teamed up to form Warbird Restoration Services, which is a new organisation dedicated to restoring and saving (where possible) what is left of our aviation heritage.
The key to all this is that it is a volunteer run setup - no money in it for us, just our time, knowledge, enthusiasm and experience. We are more determined to get to work and provide world quality restoration works to other community organisations that don't have the facilities or skillsets to do such things.
That means we need to call on YOU
- anyone that can provide ANY
form of help, be it cleaning, riveting, painting, general things and the like. It's the work of all of us as a group that will make this move forward. The work performed on the DC-3 Moorabbin Museum last week was a fantastic indication of what can be done with Ash at the helm leading the group.
We will also be working on numerous aircraft in Ash and Brad's factory in Sunshine, with some bigger projects looming on the horizon. This is a fantastic opportunity to see and be involved in old aircraft being restored using some of the original Commonwealth Aircraft Corporation machinery - no CNC computers in sight !
We want to make these regular events at whatever location is required. Naturally we don't ask nor expect you to turn up to all of them but remember - the key to all of this is that we all enjoy ourselves as a group, get a feed and drink on the day, and most importantly, we rescue, restore and move forward projects that have otherwise stalled or moved at a snails pace for far too long.
Remember, the key to all of this is to keep in mind what we are saving, and what future generations will benefit from the work we do now.
Drop me a line via PM if you would like to register your interest. We already have a great core group of 10 or so, the more the merrier. Does not matter about your skill levels, just join in and do what you can, then you can say that you worked on that aircraft....
I will post later tonight once I have finished setting up the Facebook page, please join us there too, like and share the page and chip in with your own photos and info.
