Wiscasset, Maine (NEWS CENTER) -- Some remarkable veterans of World War II are causing excitement in Wiscasset.
Five combat airplanes - the pilots call them "war-birds" -- have taken up residence at the Wiscasset Airport for a few months.
The planes include a P-40 fighter, a Corsair fighter, a B-25 bomber, a P-51 Mustang and, rarest of all, a Japanese Zero fighter plane. The Zero is said to be one of only two in the world that can still fly.
All the planes, in fact, have been restored to near-original condition and they do fly. They're owned by the Texas Flying Legends Museum, which plans to bring them to Wiscasset for part of each year. Chief Pilot Warren Pietsch says the planes were purchased from other collectors and restorers over the last couple of years to create the museum.
