It was later purchased by Gerald Yagen, president of Tidewater Tech, a group of schools offering associate degrees in nursing, electronics, computers and such vocations, and also of the Aviation Institute of Maintenance, a mechanics' school of which Yagen's Fighter Factory collection of warbirds is a subsidiary.
Yagen commissioned Avspecs in South Auckland, New Zealand to undertake the enormous restoration - there was little of the original wooden structure left, with only the metal spars and framework left on which to work.

Gerald Yagen of Tidewater Tech in Norfolk, Virginia, sent along this photo of what appears to be the tail section of a Brewster 239 fighter.The two men holding the relict are Russian "agents" who've been scouting for warplanes in the former Soviet Union.
Jerry wrote us on January 7, 1997: "We have had several inquiries from some historians living near St. Petersburg [the former Leningrad, near which the Finnish Air Force operated in the Continuation War] if we would have any interest in acquiring Brewster Buffalo wreckage."

The man behind the Fighter Factory is Gerald Yagen, a 60-year-old businessman-educator with a deep love of aviation.He's president of Tidewater Tech, a group of schools offering associate degrees in nursing, electronics, computers and such vocations, and also of the Aviation Institute of Maintenance, a mechanics' school of which the Fighter Factory is a subsidiary.
"I consider myself a temporary custodian of this history," said Yagen, talking in his Virginia Beach office.The Virginia Tech grad bought his first plane at age 25, a Piper Cherokee.About 10 years ago at a convention of Piper Aerostar owners in Canada, he came upon an exhibit of old airplanes.
Seeing an old SNJ4, "I said, 'I've got to get me one like that, a fun airplane."' He met a plane restorer who put him on to an old P-40 in Georgia.
...
Yagen called the Spitfire "the most enjoyable plane I've got."A cherished memory, he said, is of flying that plane over the coast of southern England the same skies where those planes thwarted Adolf Hitler's invasion plans in the Battle of Britain.
How many planes does the Fighter Factory have?With constant new acquisitions, planes away at air shows, and planes in various stages of assembly, even Yagen says he can't give an exact answer.
...
I'm also getting a strong interest in World War I airplanes," Yagen said.
Yagen emphasized that the Virginia Beach Airport is not a museum, and is not intended as an exhibit for the public."We don't want to see tour buses pulling up," he said.Even if he had wanted to make the place a museum, "I don't know if I can do that.Zoning, and all that."
Before Yagen bought it, the airstrip had been used in recent years only by crop-dusting aircraft and planes towing ad banners.
But Yagen said that an occasional visitor with a serious interest would be welcomed especially if he's a veteran who flew one of the old warplanes.
...
"People come to see these planes and they get a tear in the eye," Yagen said.
