In sheer physical size, the B-29 Enola Gay, which dropped the first atomic bomb on Hiroshima in 1945, was the largest restoration project ever undertaken by the Smithsonian's Air and Space Museum. In this long-form podcast, NASM's Anne McCombs and Bob McLean explain what it took to get the airplane into the same shape it was when it completed its historic mission.

Classic Fighters 2009 #8: Nanchang CJ6 from Rodney's Aviation Ramblings by Rodney
I quite like the Chinese designed/built Nanchang CJ6. Originally designed as a Chinese military ab-initio trainer, this type has gained in popularity in the west as a fairly inexpensive warbird, and after a short flight in one a couple of months ago, I have to say that it is a nice plane to fly…

Classic Fighters 2009 #9: Vincent Aviation Dash-8 from Rodney's Aviation Ramblings by (Rodney)
Another of the more modern displaying was this Vincent Aviation De Havilland Canada DHC-8-102, ZK-VAC. The display showed off the capabilities of a lightly loaded airliner, with a number of takeoffs and landings, all on the short [700 meter, approximate] runway 25…

Classic Fighters 2009 #10: Douglas DC3 Dakota from Rodney's Aviation Ramblings by Rodney
The Douglas DC3 is very recognisable as both a World War 2 military transport aircraft and as a post-war civilian airliner. This particular aircraft was one of two DC3's at the airshow [I'm not sure, but I think that the other aircraft was ZK-AMY], but was the only one I saw flying…

Classic Fighters 2009 #11: Kiwi Blue from Rodney's Aviation Ramblings by Rodney

Parachute Training and Support Unit [PTSU], and provided a good demonstration for the crowd having jumped out of the Douglas DC3, ZK-DAK, just a few second earlier…

Classic Fighters 2009 #12: Bell 47 Sioux from Rodney's Aviation Ramblings by Rodney

RNZAF Bell 47 Sioux helicopters. The Sioux is the RNZAF's basic helicopter trainer, and was the first helicopter type to be used by the air force…

Classic Fighters 2009 #13: Bell UH-1H Iroquois from Rodney's Aviation Ramblings by Rodney
Bell UH-1H Iroquois is the RNZAF's main helicopter, and, like the Bell 47 Sioux, put on a good display for the crowd. This included the low-level approach from the south followed by demonstrations of their manoeuvrability. Unfortunately no dropping of cars or rappelling troops this time…

Classic Fighters 2009 #14: Messerschmitt Bf108/Nord 1002 Taifun from Rodney's Aviation Ramblings by Rodney
The next aircraft in this series is the Messerschmitt Bf 108/Nord 1002 Taifun, ZK-WFI. This aircraft is specifically a Nord 1002 which is a post-war version of the same aircraft…
