America’s First War Plane Will Fly Again

The Mission

The DH4 Liberty is an icon; the definitive symbol of America’s first foray into aerial combat, flying in the face of a war that redefined our geopolitical reality. But time has forgotten what the Liberty has done for us.

We seek to change that.
