Fighter Aces Collection


Museum of Flight
Seattle, Washington
The Museum of Flight acquired the Doug Champlin/Fighter Aces Collection in Mesa Arizona. The collection consisted of 22 World War I and II aircraft. We worked with the museum on the design and implementation of hanging systems for eight of the WWI airplains. Working with Donovan Rigging of Seattle, Washington, we were responsible for hanging the following aircraft in the WWI gallery of the new Personal Courage Wing:
  • Fokker D VII
  • Fokker D VIII
  • Fokker E III Eindecker
  • Sopwith Camel
  • Sopwith Pup
  • Nieuport 27
  • Pfalz DXII
  • RumplerTaube (in the Museum’s main lobby)
