Myself my partner are in the process of restoring two Fairchild 24R aircraft. They have both got zero time engines and both served in the South African Air Force. We are rebuilding them to sell and want to know if anybody is interested. They will be complete before the year end 2005.
Regards
Vincent
P.S Your web site doesnt accomodate for South Africa or any of its provinces so I used Michigan

G-AJSX - circa 1970. Found rotting in a local builder\'s yard. Bought for 20. Towed home to my garage by tying the tail to the bumper of my car. RAF Museum WOULD accept it - but wanted me to store it for them! Traded off in exchange for work on an VW engine for my home-build.
Guy I traded it to flew into a hill a couple of weeks later - so never DID get the work done.
Lots of subsequent enquiries from all over the world for the Warner Scarab and twin Bendix mags.
Last I heard, the Northern Aircraft Preservation Society were trying to track it down.
