The Federal Aviation Administration presented Doc’s Friends with an airworthiness certificate and Jim Murphy, Doc’s Friends Restoration Project Manager, accepted the certificate and presented it to volunteers and to Doc’s Friends board members on Friday, May 20, 2016.
The acceptance of the airworthiness certificate means final stages of preparing the warbird for a return to flight will soon begin. Click here for more information on the FAA’s airworthiness certificate presentation and what it means for the restoration program.
