Is the Sikorsky JRS-1 at the Hazy Center being restored or did they just reassemble it? I'd like to see it put on display "as is" but I can't find any information on the "plan." Thanks...

That's a question for Marauderman26 - he's the expert on the JRS-1 & actually works/worked on it for NASM's resto shop. Try to PM him... (I haven't talked to him directly in a while.)

I checked the NASM site and seen this one has an interesting history too. That would make 3 aircraft that I know of as PH survivors. The other two being the P-40 and the Duck. If we count the remains of the Japanese A6M2 Zero "B11-120" from the carrier Hiryu located at the PAM, it would make 4. (IAW Wiki)

This Sikorsky JRS-1 is the only aircraft in the museum collection that was stationed at Pearl Harbor on December 7, 1941.

Thanks...great thread. Nathan has done alot of work on the subject. This is part of his last post on it. Maybe he has an update???

Quote:
Surviving:
* JRS-1 at Garber - See video above (Info courtesy Nathan)
* P-40B at Duxford - (Info courtesy Nathan)
* Aeronca 65TC onboard USS Missouri - Took me a while to realize that you meant onboard NOW and not DURING the attack. (Info courtesy Nathan, Pat Carry)
* Aeronca in Hawaii - piloted by Oahu legislator Roy Vitousek, same as above? (Info courtesy John Dupre, David_Aiken)
* Zero at PAM - remains from Niihau incident, same as mentioned shot down by Pat Carry?
* SBD-2 (Bu No. 2106) "Midway Madness" at NNAM - Confusingly referred to as located at PNAM in the first post of this thread - apparently was meant to refer to "Pensacola Naval Aviation Museum" instead of what I assumed to be "Pacific Aviation Museum", also a survivor of the Battle of Midway, detailed 171-page archaeological and historical documentation report. (Info courtesy Nathan, A&T Recovery)
* Waco UIC (1933) - flown by Robert Tyce during the attack, now registered as NC13408 (Info courtesy rothjonb)
* Grumman Duck (s/n 1649) - owned by Chuck Greenhill, Warbird Depot Article (Info courtesy warbird1)

Questionable/Unknown/Not Recovered/Fate Unknown:
* B-10/12s - Underwater offshore? (Info courtesy Cubs & Nathan)
* Kingfisher - With Arizona Wreckage? (Info courtesy SaxMan)
* Kingfisher - Parts found dredging Missouri berth, same as above? (Info corutesy Cripes A Mighty)
* Kingfisher - Crushed, dumped in harbor?, same as above? (Info courtesy David_Aiken)
* DC-3 - On ground during attack (Info courtesy John Dupre)
* Aeronca - Shot at, piloted by Marguerite Gambo (Info courtesy John Dupre, David_Aiken)
* 3 K-T a/c - 3 shot down, 2 piloted by U.S. Army soldiers, 1 piloted by U.S. Navy sailor (Info courtesy John Dupre, David_Aiken)
* Interstate Cadet - flown by Cornelia Fort, a different Cadet [from the attack?] survives (Info courtesy John Dupre, David_Aiken)
* Unknown a/c - instructor & student (Info courtesy David_Aiken)
* Kingfisher - "THE BUG", from other thread here (Info courtesy Mark Allen M)
* Stearman - N49602? (Info courtesy b747cf)

Incorrectly Claimed:
* Ford Trimotor - supposed bullet holes in tail (Info courtesy Cubs, JBoyle, David_Aiken)
* Kingfisher at UH - (Info courtesy SaxMan)

Anyone know what they did with the remains of the Japanese airplanes shot down? (Other than the one above and this Val)

Its my understanding the JRS-1 for now is on display in the restoration shop with no restoration work taking place on it at this time. I dont know if there is a restoration timetable for this aircraft or not.
