The Unseen History Of Paul Allen's Warbirds

Joshua McNichols
09/08/2012

Paul Allen's Flying Heritage Collection includes antique warplanes rescued from swamps, jungles and beaches, and completely restored. They're beautiful to see, and they even fly. But the wreck of a plane also tells a story.

Collection curator Cory Graff tells three stories from the planes' post–war years: stories of women heroes sent back to the kitchen, desperate stunt pilots, and paranoid dictators.
