After months of restoration the Parker Pusher Project has finally flown again!

"We didn't know it was going to fly today but the conditions were right so we went for it," says WAAAM Chief Pilot Ben Davidson.

The pilot for the first flight was Bill Avolio. After extensive research on how the plane flew before it was restored by watching old films of the plane in several movies, Avolio and Davidson were convinced they had a good idea of how the plane should preform in flight. November 23 was cold but clear as Avolio made the first successful flight. The flight was short but it showed that all of the hard work the volunteers put into restoring the aircraft had paid off - and that the glued old and new wood would hold.

Check out the photos of the flight here.
