    Just found out that a P-39 is on its way down here for restoration:
    P-39Q Airacobra. | Pioneer Aero

    Hopefully we'll see it flying at our next airshow in 2017!

    I've heard that this is one of three on their way down here...

    Apparently all three projects are in NZ - A P-39 and two kingfishers. Not too sure about where they're going to do the test flying of the kingfishers though, there aren't any hangars by lakes that I know of down here, which means that it'll be on salt water.
