White 1 - Where are you?

While I am in Florida on vacation I had hoped to visit White 1 which is a FW-190 under restoration.




I visited the location of my last visit two years ago to find out that owner of the restoration project had moved on and had sold White 1 to another organisation which has since gone bankrupt.

I need to follow up some leads from the White 1 website:

http://www.white1foundation.org/

I will report as soon as I can.

  1. Hi Jim,

    Gotta love the FW 190 - my favourite single engined fighter! I have already earmarked the acquisition of 4 of these for Axis and Allies Angels 20.

    I look forward to reading what you come up with on this.

    All the best,

    DC

  2. It's a bit annoying in that I first saw White 1 2 years ago and didn't visit last year as I thought it wouldn't have changed much. It was literally a pile of scrap!

  3. As far as I can tell White 1 was sold to another company who have since gone bankrupt. The registration of White 1 seems to have been moved to Texas. I still have a lead to follow up on!
