In spite of its relative youth, aviation history is full of stories worth remembering; stories that brought us to where we are today and continue to provide valuable lessons, insight and inspiration for current and future aviators. One of the organizations working to preserve these stories is the Humanus Documentary Films Foundation, which recently premiered the museum cut of their World War I aviation film, The Millionaires Unit, at the New-York Historical Society in New York City.
Newly restored to its original condition, the Collings Foundations Grumman F6F will make an appearance at AirVenture this year, EAA has announced.
