“A perfect restoration.”

Pierre Swick, of Waitsfield, Vermont donated a UPF-7 WACO to the collection. The tandem trainer joins the organization’s flying history collection at the Stow, Massachusetts headquarters. This aircraft has been fully restored with the greatest possible care and attention to detail. Consider this aircraft flying art!

Rolling off the Waco Aircraft Company’s Troy, Ohio production line in 1940, this UPF-7 still retains its original civilian registration NC29324. WACO built more than six hundred UPF-7s from 1937 through 1942, a few of which served as PT-14s in the US Army Air Force. The type is well sought after today, with roughly 80 still on the civil registry. An earlier variant, the YMF-5, returned to production in the mid-80s with the WACO Classic Aircraft Company of Lansing, Michigan.

*The Waco is located at the Hangar Annex of the American Heritage Museum currently and is not open to the public other than for select special event weekends. See the Event Calendar at this link for these weekends.
