    Bob Cramsie is a true craftsman. Besides restoring aircraft he has a garage full of vehicles he has restored to exceptional beauty. But, watching his work on the SBD-1 has been a fantastic journey. If you had seen this aircraft when we received it, you would not believe that the exquisite result of his efforts is the same aircraft. It looks pristine, like it must have when it came off the manufacturers assembly line. Maybe even better because Bob has personally crafted this restoration every step of the way. When the Dauntless joins the museum's other Warbirds we will display the three combat models that participated in the initial days of WWII in the Pacific; a F4F Wildcat, fighter,SBD-1 Dauntless, dive bomber and a TBM, torpedo bomber. The recently dedication of the Joe Foss exhibit provides an exciting view of the pilots and aircraft that turned back the Japanese aggression in the Pacific.
