When you think of Netflix, you normally wouldn’t think that they’d be something there for a warbird fanatic like you. Sure, they have lots of World War II documentaries that are good, but plane specific content, probably not.
Well, you couldn’t be more wrong but don’t worry, we were just as surprised as you’ll be.
The show is called Plane Resurrection and it started back in 2016. Each episode chronicles the restoration of a different warbird. The first one was a P-51, the second a Hawker Hurricane followed by a triplane called the Fokker Dr.I. At the beginning of 2017, they started working on and finished filming the restoration of a Stearman, then an AT-6 Harvard and ended with a rare Percival Q6.
This show was also nominated for the Royal Television Society Best Factual Programme 2017 although they’ve only had an estimated budget of $200,000 to film the whole thing. We recommend you watch it as it’s well edited and extremely informative. We know most of you like that.
You can see a clip from the first episode below. During it, they were restoring the P-51 Mustang named Alley.
