The creators of the Emmy-award-winning PBS hit “Red Tail Reborn” will be unveiling a preview of their new aviation series, “The Restorers,” at the Reel Stuff Film Festival in Dayton, Ohio, Nov. 6.
This new PBS series, based on the original 2004 movie of the same name, will chronicle those who restore warbirds and antique aircraft. The Restorers series has begun filming, starting at the B-25 gathering and Doolittle Reunion this past April in Dayton, Ohio. Filming will continue throughout the United States for the coming year.
The producers, Hemlock Films, are once again partnered with PBS to bring this aviation series to a national audience.
Although some stories have been chosen for inclusion in the series, the producers are looking for more stories of intriguing aircraft and aircraft restorers.
The series preview will be screened at this year’s Reel Stuff Film Festival of Aviation Nov. 6, at 3p.m. The festival is presented by the National Aviation Hall of Fame in Dayton, Ohio.
