Brunswick volunteer making an attempt to save lots of Chilly Warfare-era navy aircraft amid improvement

BRUNSWICK, Maine — John Vandal has all the time taken pleasure in his work.

Throughout his 20 years within the U.S. Navy, the retired Petty Officer First Class helped preserve the fleet’s birds within the air.

“I’d repair an airplane that was down, one they mentioned couldn’t fly,” Vandal mentioned. “Then, I’d watch it take off and I’d have the satisfaction of understanding I did that — I made it fly. There’s nothing flawed with arduous work.”
