Warbird Workshop: Piper Cub | Yesterday ( Season 1 Episode 5)


Members of the Lincoln Aero Club discover a war hero in their rural hangar.? Golf Oscar Romeo was used as an artillery spotter plane by the US Army in North Africa and at the siege of Monte Cassino in Italy.

Engineer Rob Stephens takes on the massive task of stripping 1980s fabric and paintwork off the plane and restoring it to its military markings at his workshop in the Fens. There's a deadline to meet – the owners want to mark the 75th anniversary of D-Day with an ambitious flight across the English Channel.

Restoration specialist Ken Riordan begins the painstaking task of hand-stitching new fabric onto the Cub's wood and aluminium skeleton but then Rob spots a problem with two vital components that help hold on the wings.

The deadline is looming – and then the weather springs one last surprise on the team…

About Warbird Workshop

In hangars and machine shops the length and breadth of Britain a brave bunch of engineers and aviators are battling to keep the UK's most historic warplanes in the air. From Spitfires to C47 paratroop planes, Cold War jets to helicopters, the skies of 2020 are home to a growing fleet of antique warbirds – 20th century military aircraft rebuilt or even recreated from scratch.

Now Warbird Workshop is climbing into the cockpit with the pilots and professional engineers committed to returning planes that fought and won wars to the skies. We'll watch as vintage engines are coaxed back into life and restorers puzzle out the problems presented by aircraft designed before their grand dads were born.

And we'll capture the nostalgia and the drama of first test flights as iconic fighters like the Spitfire soar into the sky again after rebuilds that can take decades.
