Re: Next Level Collecting
I did a bit of Googling and Michel Pont currently has 110 aircraft on his land. Many of them he purchased from NATO bases where the obsolete aircraft were put up for sale for scrap. He's 87, has more money than time, and has been rescuing aircraft for 30 years. Some of the newer ones he has came from trades of rare older aircraft to museums. He does have some under simple car-port style roofs but many are in the open. He has restored some and hopes to do so with as many as he can get to in his remaining time. Yes, some may deteriorate beyond repair, but that fate is better than the scraping that he saved them from, or for that matter, the many rare aircraft the US has sent to bomb ranges to use as targets.
