Help Support the Tuskegee Airmen PT-19A Restoration

The Collings Foundation has started the restoration of Fairchild PT-19A serial number 43-31512, one of the last known primary trainer aircraft that served to train the Tuskegee Airmen, the first group of African-American military aviators and servicemen that fought in World War II. This historic aircraft will join our Boeing PT-17 Kaydet “Stearman” s/n 41-25454 that also served with the Tuskegee Airmen and will eventually be on display and offering flight training at the Collings Foundation headquarters in Stow, MA. The restoration is expected to take up to two years and has a budget of $150,000 to accomplish – and we need your help to bring this important aircraft back to the skies!
