1945 Republic P-47N Thunderbolt

This P-47N project is based on a P-47N fuselage that was on the production line in Evansville, IN when production ceased due to the end of World War II.  After being declared surplus, Earl Reinert / Meridian Aircraft Company acquired three P-47N fuselages. In 1966, Reinert traded this fusealge s/n 171 to Walter Soplata in exchange for several engines and propellers.  In 2020 it was sold to the current owner.  

The current owner has acquired many additional P-47N parts and a set of crashed P-47N wings to aid in a future restoration.
