Curtiss SB2C-5 Helldiver

Collections specialist Scott Wood examines the engine of the Curtiss SB2C-5 Helldiver, the first aircraft to be restored in the Mary Baker Engen Restoration Hangar at the Steven F. Udvar-Hazy Center in Chantilly, VA.

Collections specialists began work in early 2013 by examining, documenting, and cleaning sections of the aircraft prior to restoration.
