Please Help Us Keep The Helldiver Flying
The mission of the West Texas Wing is to keep the world’s only flying SB2C Helldiver in the air for many years to come. To accomplish this will require the engine to be rebuilt or replaced at some point in the future. The Wing is working to raise the funds to have a replacement engine on hand at all times and ready to install whenever the need arises. The estimated cost for this project is between $50,000 and $80,000. With this goal in mind, we have set up a special fund that will be used only for this purpose.
If you would like to help the West Texas Wing insure that the Beast of the Fleet continues to travel and educate many generations of people about the heroic efforts of our WWII veterans and the aircraft they flew, please press the ‘Donate Now’ at the bottom of this page.
