Do you guys know where there are world war 2 airworthy aircraft being sold.

If you have a link to a website that has info on this can you post it.

Best bet would be to keep an eye on a site like this, but I doubt very highly that youd find one that wasn't in the hands of a very stubborn collector.

I think there are a few P-38's under the ice in Greenland you can recover for cheaper than buying one.

I'd love to own a P-38, TBD-1, or a PBY Catalina.

Arclight.....yes i saw that programe about recovring those planes from under the ice in Greenland. Just how far had they sunk into the ice, I think it was about 100 feet down and took them over two years to get to the plane. The ice had started to crush them with it's weight and took ages to get the plane back into flying order.

There are world war II planes around, but they cost big bucks, guzzle gas and usually require a tame mechanic in residence. If you havent just won the lottery, best bet is to buy on of the trainers available. Try to get a T-28. big radial, does over 300, and doesn't cost a fortune.
