    More Boomerangs coming back!

    Hi All,
    Surprised nobody has mentioned this news item courtesy of:- http://www.facebook.com/warbirdsonline/

    You cant have too many CAC Boomerangs. Ian Baker is restoring several CAC Boomerang series aircraft & the scope and scale of his operation has expanded considerably. Warbirds Online caught up with Ian recently & in addition to Ians previously reported personal restorations of CA-12s A46-89 and A46-90 and customer owned CA-13 A46-140, Ian has acquired CA-13s A46-126, A46-128, A46-158 and static restoration CA-13, A46- 160. Ian also has a large inventory of parts and compone...nts to assist in his #Warbird restoration work.

    Previously there had been a belief that very little wing structure survived post war scrapping of Boomerangs however Ian has amassed quite a number of original Boomerang wing structural sections. Ian is currently in the process of constructing a purpose built facility in NSW to allow for the restorations to progress in a more streamlined manner. There are not enough serviceable components for all of the airframes and Ian has a methodical approach to reproducing items from original patterns in batches as required both for his own needs and those of other Boomerang restorers. Several of these aircraft are for sale & if you are interested in acquiring a Boomerang you can contact Ian Baker for more details. Want to know more about the task of restoring a CAC Boomerang? Then read news more about Ians work on our website at:- http://bit.ly/2XfuUtR.
