A second life for a noble, old aircraft
The Hamilton Spectator has this story about an abandoned 1956 Piper Apache aircraft that Mohawk College Aviation Structures students will be restoring as part of a plan to turn the derelict aircraft into a permanent, interactive display at Eva Rothwell Centre in Hamilton's north end. The donation was faciliated by community builder and Mohawk Distinguished Fellow Don MacVicar.
