AOPA Pilot magazine
Hello, I work for UK-based documentary production company NERD TV (http://www.nerdsite.co.uk).
We’re making a TV series for a US network about people with interesting collections of aircraft. The important thing is the collections cannot be entirely comprised of gleaming, pristine museum pieces.
An ideal candidate would be someone with a couple of airworthy planes and a few other projects that are in various stages of completion (the messier the better). They could be unfinished projects, once-loved specimens that have fallen into disrepair, or just rusty shells in a barn. The more the better.
We would also need the subjects to have other (non-aviation) items in their vehicular collections; a classic car gathering dust, a pile of disassembled motorbikes, a boat sitting on a trailer, or maybe even an old bus in a field.
At this point, we’re just trying to speak to people – nothing will be broadcast. The idea of the show is for our restoration team to help bring fading collections back to their glistening best. This could be a chance for people to finally complete projects that have been on-the-go for years, and may even add significant value.
If you, or someone you know, might fit the bill (or are just curious about the idea), please email me at [email protected] or call 0207 043 0080.
