The Amazing Liberty Engine


The Amazing Liberty Engine

This beautiful engine normally lives and breathes in Dick and Lana Vento's 1932 GarWood of the same name.

I took an opportunity while the engine is out of the boat to photograph every square inch of this amazing machine.

As you look through these pictures try to imagine all of the places this engine may have flown during its service in WWII. All the while carrying brave American soldiers to their duty and safely back home again.

Today it flies across the beautiful blue waters of Lake Tahoe. It is a proud testament to American engineering and a true work of art.
