Weribee B24 restoration

Dec 22, 2012

Bill helps out at an aircraft hanger in Weribee, where a World War 2 B-24 bomber is being restored. The place is described by Bill as a “huge men’s shed” full of delightfully corroded and neglected pieces of aviation hardware

that are painstakingly brought back to some sort of life by retired tradesmen

where much banter is exchanged


another tea-break is required

and work proceeds at a steady pace.
