Our visit to the Titan Aircraft Factory! We visited Titan Aircraft just before school started for the boys at the beginning of September 2017. We spent the day meeting with John Williams, Owner & CEO of Titan Aircraft and Bill Koleno, Titan’s General Manager. These are two amazing individuals who have worked to make Titan the great company it is today. We got a factory tour of the entire kit construction process. It was amazing to see how sheets of metal, tubing and raw steel and aluminum blocks could be transformed into a 3/4-scale replica WWII Mustang.

A the time of our visit, John and Bill were preparing to fly in the “D-Day Ohio” event. This is a full-scale reenactment of the D-Day invasion storming the beaches in Normandy, France. The shore of Lake Erie is strikingly similar to Normandy, so they host reenactors from around the world to stage the epic battle. It wouldn’t be complete without the low passes and simulated attach runs and escorts of Titan’s T-51 mustangs in formation!
