While the war may be over, World War II planes still are making their way around the United States. Last Wednesday, a wing of a P-51 Mustang from WWII was brought into the Central City airport to be repaired by Don Shorney and Don Imhof.

“They called yesterday (Wednesday) afternoon and they wanted to know if we could do it,” Shorney said. “We do a lot of doping fabric work here.”
Doping fabric is a chemical process where the fabric is shrunk with heat and then covered with a pink chemical, then silver is put on top of it, Shorney said.

The repairs were being made on a wing of a North American P-51 Mustang, C model plane.
