Stuka Restoration Project on Display

PRESERVATION

The fuselage, wings and wheel fairings of the Stuka on display at the Flying Heritage & Combat Armor Museum.
FHCAM

The Flying Heritage & Combat Armor Museum (FHCAM) has opened a new building to the public. Based at Everett in Washington, it has enabled the attraction – set up by Paul G Allen, who sadly died in October – to increase its exhibition space by more than 60%. Its centrepiece is Junkers Ju 87R-4 Stuka 6234/L1+FW. The aircraft, which was on the British register as G-STUK between 2003 and 2007, is one of several crashed examples recovered from the Soviet Union following the fall of the Iron Curtain in 1989. Built in 1941, it served with Lehrgeschwader 1 and later Sturzkampfgeschwader 5.
