For award-winning restoration artist and fabricator Mike Vadeboncoeur, takeoff is a moment of truth—the ultimate test. Owner of Midwest Aero Restorations Ltd., Danville, Ill., Vadeboncoeur and his crew specialize in the painstaking job of disassembling and rebuilding World War II-era warbirds to original condition, right down to the last rivet, label and wire marking identification. But the work doesn’t stop there. They also restore the airplanes to modern FAA flight standards and safety regulations. A single project can take several years before the aircraft is ready for its test flight. Over the last two decades, Vadeboncoeur has finished seven P-51 Mustang projects. #airplnae#restoration#welding#fabricating#artist#P51#WWII#WW2#WorldWar#warbirds#aircraft fabrication #metal#art#cutting#forming#sheetmetal#aluminum#steel#FAA
