David Prescott, a Navy veteran and founder of the Prescott Foundation, houses a number of warbird aircraft at The Hanger at 743. Prescott’s fondness for aviation began as a hobby when he was a child. He made models with his father and eventually became a pilot. The Hangar at 743 and The Warbird Factory were born out of his passion, and that passion is present in every choice our mechanics make.

The warbirds in our collection were built in the 1930s and 1940s. Since that time, safety regulations, engineering, and mechanics have changed a lot. We aim to repair and restore vintage aircraft with authenticity, but also with an eye toward flying these planes safely for years to come.
