DC-9 Cockpit Restoration Project

Hello everyone, THANK YOU for sticking with me, and this blog, during the long hiatus in postings. I'm still working out information, 'blessings' and approval of future postings. Alas, I've received some new information today I wanted to pass along to our viewers...

I received an email along with a website link today regarding the restoration of a former North Central DC-9 cockpit. Aircraft N962N, '912', began life with North Central Airlines in May 1969 and was finally retired to Arizona in 2005. The aircraft was broken up in 2008 and hence, this project began. This looks like a great and fun venture in restoration!

Perry Van Veen is heading up the venture and is looking for interested parties in the project (not limited) to include stories of the aircraft, actual restoration work, parts, you name it! Here is the projects website and I hope you'll all take a look...many photos, history of the aircraft, etc. ENJOY!!!
