Helldiver on display at Udvar-Hazy

A World War II dive-bomber, the Curtiss SB2C-5 Helldiver, went on exhibition April 1 at the National Air and Space Museum’s Steven F. Udvar-Hazy Center, where it has been undergoing restoration for the past 15 months.

It is the first historic aircraft to be restored in the Mary Baker Engen Restoration Hangar, which is part of a major new addition to the center, also consisting of several artifact storage facilities, a collection processing unit, the Emil Buehler Conservation Laboratory and the museum’s Archives.
