  • In August 1940, 16 months before the United States entered the war, the U.S. Air Officer in London, Lieutenant General Delos C. Emmons, was briefed on British research in radar (RAdio Detection And Ranging), which had been underway since 1935 and had played an important role in the nation's defense against the Luftwaffe during the Battle of Britain.
  • The Northrop P-61 Black Widow gets a lot of attention considering the relatively small role it played in World War II. Unlike the P-47 Thunderbolt and P-51 Mustang, it did not have an impressive number of kills. It downed only about 127 aircraft (18 were V-1 Buzz Bombs). Its overall impact on the war was minimal and its victories were sporadic.

THE MID-ATLANTIC AIR MUSEUM'S P-61B 'BLACK WIDOW' RECOVERY AND RESTORATION PROJECT

There are only four P-61 'Black Widow' night fighters in existence, worldwide. All but one of these survivors are on permanent static display in national museums. All three are incapable of flight.


The fourth 'Black Widow' is the subject of
an epic recovery and restoration project
conceived and led by WW II veteran
Eugene 'Pappy' Strine, co-founder
of the Mid-Atlantic Air Museum.

The journey began at a wartime
crash site on a jungle-cloaked
New Guinea mountaintop in
the South Pacific, nearly three
decades ago. It will culminate
when this rare plane does what
its three sisters can no longer do..

Follow along as we relate the story of this arduous journey.
