WACO Classic Aircraft announced that it has received EASA type certificate validation for the (Great Lakes) 2T-1A-1 and 2T-1A-2. Having this approval greatly simplifies export of the aircraft to all EU member countries. WACO Classic Aircraft Corporation of Battle Creek, Michigan, is the world’s only manufacturer of new FAA and EASA certified 1930’s era classic biplanes and currently produces the WACO YMF-5D. In 2011, WACO acquired the type certificate for the Great Lakes 2T-1A-1 and 2T-1A-2, and has begun the process of bringing the aircraft back into production. I More information visit – and

RECOVERY The airframe will now be restored to Fiat G.55 wartime specification. Owner Jerry Yagen, of Military Museum fame is looking for any original Fiat G.55 pieces that can contribute to making this aircraft as authentic as possible.


Great Lakes 2T-1A-2


It is hoped that the aircraft will be housed in a facility that has been provisionally named “The Vulcan Engineering Education and Experience Centre”, or Ve3. It would be located at the VTST’s operating base at Robin Hood Airport, in South Yorkshire. The document released stated, “We (VTST) see Ve3 as a new type of educational experience, not an academic institution, not a museum, not a tourist attraction, but combining the most relevant elements of all three to inspire and educate a new generation of British engineers.” I More information visit –

Russian Recoveries Yak-1 at the lakeside in Murmansk after it had come to the surface.

Two historic former WW2 Soviet Air Force aircraft have been recovered from Lake Chernogubskoe, Murmansk during June. The first retrieved was a Yakovlev Yak-1 which had landed on the frozen lake due to fuel starvation in August 1943. The tail of the aircraft had broken off but has also been recovered. The aircraft has now been sent to the Vadim Zadorozhny Technical Museum in Moscow to be assessed for future restoration. Il-2 “Sturmovik” similar to the aircraft recovered in June.

The second aircraft was a Soviet Navy Ilyushin Il-2 “Sturmovik” which suffered combat damage from Messerschmitt Bf109’s and force landed on the frozen lake. This aircraft has been sent to Novosibersk in Siberia where it will undergo full restoration by the Aviarestoration company to flying condition.
