"Barrett-Jackson has been on the cutting edge of embracing new markets at the right time,” added Davis. “We have sold some of the most significant vehicles in the world, so it makes perfect sense to sell such an important piece of aeronautical history. Vintage planes, similar to the historic automobiles that cross our block, represent an incredible snapshot into our past and evoke passion and appreciation from collectors."
