It’s summer, we try to spend as much time as possible in the air with our planes or on the road with our vintage cars. However, occasionally we manage to move our projects along. The A3 fuel trailer has already had its undercarriage completely overhauled and we have now added the hose mounts, and fuel nozzles.
There is a lot of work and not much time. Now we are continuing the restoration of a relatively rare fuel trailer in Europe, used by the US ARMY AIR FORCE during World War II.
The problem is the lack of relevant documentation and spare parts, however we are slowly moving forward. The trailer is rust free and has had primer paint applied. Leaf springs, brakes, wheel hubs are completely repaired.
This year we completed three of our long-term projects. It wasn’t entirely easy to decide which one would feature on our New Year’s card. In the end, we chose Aero C 104 from Queen Mary Trailer, GMC CCKW 353B. We wish you all to make your dreams come true in 2023.
The Military History Institute Prague has opened the Army Museum in Prague 3 – Žižkov after a complete reconstruction. In the new and modern exposition you can learn about the history of wars on the territory of the Czech Republic. In our experience, it is a good idea to set aside at least four hours for a visit, the museum is really extensive and many of the exhibits are truly unique. We are honoured to have been able to contribute a few items to the collections. Already on display in the Holocaust exhibit is a traveling suitcase from the second half of the 1930s. Which our family bought new in Austria before the Second World War.
