Sikorsky UH-19D Restoration

Estrella Warbirds Museum acquired this UH-19D (Chickasaw) helicopter early fall, 2016. The UH-19D is a 1950's vintage helicopter that was used during the Korean War. When the aircraft was originally restored, the previously donated exterior paint utilized at the time, was found to have been aged considerably. Consequently, the finish coat took a tremendous amount of abuse under the local desert sun and began to peel in short order from the hot summer heat. Plans are underway to strip and repaint the helicopter using high quality paint. Your assistance with this project is greatly appreciated! Remember: To Hover is Heavenly!

Estrella Warbirds Museum is registered as a non-profit under the provision of sections 501(c)(3) of the IRS Code. Financial donations are tax deductible as determined by current tax laws.

Please donate today and
help us restore this majestic bird to it's original glory!
