The restoration of the world's last flying T5 Fairey Gannet is nearing completion at New Richmond Regional Airport.

Stored in a hangar on the northwestern edge of the airport, the 1950s-era British military trainer first arrived in the community in 2010.

Since Harry Odone, who is managing the restoration, and airplane owner Shannan Hendricks began working on the airplane, a fair amount of buzz has been created in the media and in historic aircraft circles about the effort.
