Aero-News: Quote of the Day (06.01.20)

"It is with great disappointment that due to the rigid Covid-19 restrictions imposed by Governor Pritzker and the State of Illinois, the 2020 TBM Avenger Reunion and Salute to Veterans will not be held in Peru this year. Our committee explored every possible avenue to hold this annual event in our city. Unfortunately the current state of the Illinois shutdown prevented us from planning and giving you the premier event you've come to expect. However - All is not lost." Source: Cary Miller, the Chairman of the TBM Reunion and Salute to Veterans -- who has been dealing with some serious issues in trying to put together a much anticipated warbird event -- but has come up with a solution for this year.

Classic Aero-TV: Historically Unique -- Marlin Horst's Exquisite Fairchild 71

From 2014: Exotic Rebuild Reveals Aerial Work Of Art

During EAA AirVenture 2014, ANN's Michael Maya Charles took the time to get a history lesson about a great airplane from days gone by. By 1929 aviation was being recognized for its ability to transport people and cargo to areas that were extremely hard to get to. This led the Fairchild Company to come up with a single engine transport plane known as the Fairchild 71. ANN's roving reporter met up with Marlin Horst who was responsible for the restoration of one of these classic Fairchild's. In this video, Horst recounts the massive project of first locating an airplane as rare as this, and then bringing it to a better than factory-new status.
