He has retrieved nearly four dozen aircraft that are now on display in museums across the county. Taras will present his unique perspective of the nearly thirty year effort to recover these important aircraft built and used by the “Greatest Generation” to preserve America’s and the world’s freedom and liberty. Most of the aircraft have been restored and are now presenting their important history to the American public.
