Nine years of meticulous work.

An undying quest for perfection.

That’s the formula local artisans followed to restore a 1930 Waco open cockpit biplane, originally built in Troy, Ohio.

The result garnered a grand champion award in the antique category at a prestigious show in Oshkosh, Wisconsin.

Under the direction of Joe Kaminskas of Biglerville, the plane’s owner, John Shue and his son, Scott Shue, both of Emigsville, spent nearly a decade restoring the plane.
