Bemidji Aircorps Aviation Brings Restored WWII Plane Back To Life
Her name is Sierra Sue II. She’s a 1944 p-51 mustang fighter plane. And, she’s one of the rarest planes of her kind that are still flight-worthy. Thanks to Bemidji Aircorps Aviation, people are getting a chance to see the refurbished P-51 in all its former glory as part of a special Veterans Day tribute. It took the group about three years to restore the Sierra Sue back to its original state, and even though the airplane is almost 70 years old, almost every nut, bolt, and paint stroke is original.
