Restoration Projects

b-52_102_smThe Wings Over the Rockies Air & Space Museum Restoration Department is tasked with preserving many of the collection’s artifacts. Activities range from simple routine cleaning of pieces to undertaking major restoration projects. Although none of the Museum’s artifacts are ever again expected to function as originally intended, it is our goal to reconfigure these precious treasures to as close to original condition as possible for accurate representation.

The restoration of this item has been underway, led by Wings’ volunteers Jack Lenten and Dave McCord, since April. Through the series of images one can see the amount of work expended to reach the outstanding result.
