Ben Merkenhof inherited a passion for vintage planes from his father, Bob. In 2011, Ben finished a restoration his father started, but sadly did not get the chance to finish due to heart failure at the age of 59. From this restoration, Ben vowed to allow as many people as possible to enjoy vintage air craft. Ben flew his project “Big Bob” 5,500 km across Australia to attend the National Antique Aeroplane Association’s annual show. During his flight, Ben worked to raise awareness of the Heart Research Institution. Ben’s effort was rewarded with the award of Grand Champion. With his second restoration complete in 2014, Ben proudly created another award winning addition to Australia’s Vintage Aircraft History. He is proud to be able to offer these unique aircraft and a very special experience.
