Paul and his partner, Kurt Hofschneider, restored this magnificent airplane in 1972 - 1973. In the summer of 1973, they flew it to the EAA fly-in at Oshkosh, Wisconsin. The airplane was judged Antique Category Champion, WWII 1939-1945. Anyone who knows about the hundreds of beautifully restored aircraft that are at Oshkosh every year will appreciate the perfection required to be judged Champion. It was later donated to the National Museum of the USAF in Dayton, Ohio. The museum has a nice photo of the airplane here.
