.... from US Homeland Security paranoia, no less!
Yes, you know me from posting about flight simulator topics, but real aviation is also close to my heart, and more in specific the history of it, old planes and old airfields. Here's a story you have to hear if you have any fuel running through your veines..... and why else would you read an AOPA blog !!??
Mr. Hendrickson, a US citizen and son of Ret. USN Captain C.F. Hendrickson acquired one of the last flying Douglas AD-4N Skyraiders (in France, no less) and brought it home with the intention to keep the history of this aircraft alive and flying! Through increasing paranoia and bureaucracy the aircraft was confiscated by the Homeland Security Dept..... If you're a US citizen and (military) aviation lover, you can help the Hendrickson's to get their plane back and prepare it for sharing it with the public!!! Please check out his website here and support them !
