Anchorage – Alaska Aviation Museum, a local nonprofit organization, is pleased to announce that the museum’s newest aircraft restoration project, the 1941 Stinson L-1 N18915, is finished! This specialty aircraft served in Alaska in World War II, serving as a reconnaissance and surveillance aircraft. This project was completed over two years by the Alaska Aviation Museum and Chaz LTD, with funding from the Rasmuson Foundation, Chaz LTD and Odom Corporation. Additional support was provided from Holliday Aircraft Services, James P. Harker and the Alaska Aviation Museum volunteer corps.
There will be an official exhibit opening on Wednesday, September 21 from noon-2pm at the Alaska Aviation Museum. A short talk about the project will be presented, as well as a flying demonstration, with light snacks and drinks provided. The event is free to the public, and the media is invited.
