“Classic Aircraft and items associated with them should live on as upcycled, recycled or reinvented items of functional and collectable furniture. It's amazing what you can find at an outback airfield. It's inspiring to hear the stories of who flew it, flew in it, or owned it, and it's so rewarding to rescue it and create a treasure for someone as a keepsake of an aircraft type once flown in, worked on or with.” - Jon
