We Need You!
Museum members and aircraft lovers-- this is your opportunity to make a difference. The skilled artisans in our restoration areas are badly in need of assistance in the ongoing task of building and restoring some of the most historic aircraft in the country. At the present time we are re-skinning our WWI era JN-4 Jenny, restoring the center section of our F4U-7 Corsair, and finishing the rebuilding of the Nieuport 11 at our Gillespie Field annex in El Cajon. In the basement of our Balboa Park location, work proceeds on construction of our ground-up reproduction P-26A and additional restoration of the Corsair, including an engine overhaul.
If you have a little time and a little mechanical talent, please share it with us as a volunteer at Balboa Park's finest attraction, San Diego Air & Space Museum. As Uncle Sam shouted from a million posters around the country a couple of generations ago, "We need you." Just call Terry Brennan at 619-234-8291 extension 141 to sign up. Restoration hours are dependent upon how much time you are willing to put in. The shops are open on Monday, Wednesday, and Friday mornings.
