Widow Maker, Reno NV '78,79
by Mike Shelton
Case #79 shows Angelo Regina's N1040N, s/n 44-73210, 'Widowmaker.' It was rebuilt from an aircraft recovered from an Israeli Kibbutz in the late '70s, it adopted the identity (and used some parts of) of an aircraft which had crashed fatally in '73. Now owned by Ike Enns, and renamed 'Miracle Maker,' it is based in Manitoba, and carries the registration CF-IKE.
The a/c is still owned by Ike and Liz Enns but is based at Riverside - Jones Airport in Jenks, Oklahoma.
Thank you, I often wondered what happened to that airplane. I was involved in the restoration efforts for several years at Van Nuys airport with Angelo's and his brother Pete' P-51's.
