REMEMBER THEIR SACRIFICE During World War I, four of the eight military pilots awarded the Congressional Medal of Honor were flying DH4s, America’s first warplane. Their heroic deeds and those of all the military aviators during the Great War have largely been forgotten. But as we face the Centennial of United States involvement in this conflict, the U.S. World War I Centennial Commission is planning tributes so we remember these sacrifices. We are officially endorsed by the USWW1CC. Sadly, not one of the original US manufactured 1918 DH4 Liberty Planes in military configuration is flying in North America today. But a group of dedicated pilots, builders and enthusiasts is restoring the last known available fuselage of this iconic aircraft. The goal is to have it in the air by Spring 2018 to travel cross-country in honor of all military aviators who have fought for our liberty over the past century. While the restoration work has begun, finding an authentic engine to power the plane has proved challenging…until now. Saving Liberty DH4 has located the rare and original V-12 Liberty Engine and is seeking funding to restore the engine and acquire other original parts. WHO WE ARE Our group of Aviation pilots, builders and enthusiasts who formed Saving Liberty DH4 is providing the experience, know how, and expertise to reconstruct a full sized, flying DH4 Liberty Plane. Once complete, the DH4 will join our currently flying 1917 Curtiss JN4 "Jenny" to begin an 18 month, sponsored national tour currently titled "The Liberty Air Tour" to bring firsthand the important story of early military aviation to all Americans. Our team has reconstructed and assembled the only cross country flying Curtiss JN4 Jenny in the world. Featured in numerous national magazines and websites, our team has demonstrated that we can put into the air on a continuously flying basis (3 years to date) a 100 year old aero plane.
