Newly Refurbished BD-5 Microjet Set to Return to Greater St. Louis Air & Space Museum in Cahokia This Week

A BD-5 Microjet will soon arrive at the Greater St. Louis Air & Space Museum in its new red, white and blue paint scheme. The aircraft, donated by Mike Kohnen, was refurbished and painted by members of the 126th ARW sheet metal shop at Scott AFB. Mark Nankivil, VP of the Museum, commented, "What a great bunch of guys and what a simply wonderful job they did...If I did not know better, I'd say they went and bought a different one and painted that! I cannot tell you enough how truly great a job they did in restoring this!"

The aircraft should arrive later this week at the Museum, located at St. Louis Downtown Airport in Cahokia, IL. Visit this site again for more photos of the arrival and later display of this beautiful aircraft.
