CASE STUDY: AEROSPACE
Twenty years of passion for aviation led Craig McBurney to the F4U-4 Corsair with the hopes of restoring the World War II
aircraft to flying condition. The Corsair was the only fighting WWII plane designed and built in Connecticut by one corporation,
today’s United Technologies Corporation. In May 2005, it was declared the state aircraft by a unanimous vote of the state
legislature, and today additive manufacturing technology is bringing it back to life.
