As our restoration team in Florida works on the P-47 Thunderbolt restoration, we have uncovered an amazing piece of history that we need your help with! As we removed the components of the turbosupercharger (turbocharger) section in the aft fuselage, we found the name of a "Rosie the Riveter" who likely helped construct the aircraft (P-47D-40-RA s/n 45-49167) in late 1944 at the Republic Aircraft factory in Evansville, IN. We think her name is "Sue Tharp" or "Sue Thorp" with a middle initial of "V"? We'd love to find her, if she is still with us, or her family. Is there anyone from the Evansville, IN area that might know or remember Sue? Any leads, email us at ahm@collingsfoundation.org! ... See MoreSee Less

Renowned History & Aviation Artist Rob Brun – Talk and Battle of the Bulge Painting Debut

February 1, 2020 @ 2:00 pm, ending 3:00 pm

$20

Artist Rob Brun has been working with the Collings Foundation and American Heritage Museum for years capturing the Foundation’s aircraft and military machines in  unique and captivating paintings.

After a year of research and work, Rob Brun’s latest painting “Battle of the Bulge” has been completed. We are looking forward to seeing his master workmanship and hear what goes into creating such a detailed and dynamic piece.

Battle of the Bulge:  At dawn on December 16th, 1944, the German Army (Wehrmacht) invaded through the Ardennes Forest bringing to bear 410,000 troops, 1,400 tanks, 2,600 artillery pieces and 1,600 anti-tank weapons in what became known as the “Battle of the Bulge,” the bloodiest battle of WW 2.

This painting, commissioned by the American Heritage Museum (Hudson, MA) and with the assistance of the 502nd Parachute Infantry Regiment re-enactors depicts those first moments of the morning of 16 December 1944.

The painting, which will be on display at the museum, will be premiered at the museum on February 1st at 2 p.m. followed by a lecture by the Artist on the research and process in creating this painting.

High quality 12″ X 16″ archival, digital gilcee collectors’ prints will soon be available autographed by the Artist and with a numbered certificate of authenticity.

There will be several other paintings from Rob Brun on display during the event:
