Since its short racing career in 1932, Robert Hall’s Bulldog Racer has captured the hearts of aviation enthusiasts everywhere. From its bold paint scheme and distinctive proportions to its massive radial engine and elliptical wings, the Bulldog’s design is an unforgettable marvel.

Now, nearly a century after its unveiling, the Bulldog has a second chance to thunder down the runway. In an ambitious effort dubbed “The Hall Bulldog Project,” a small team of aviation experts embark on a mission to revive the iconic plane.

The team is led by Jim Bourke, a world-ranked aerobatic competitor, air show pilot, and president of the International Aerobatic Club (IAC). He is joined by award-winning aircraft designer and fabricator Tony Horvath and aviation historian Matthew Lawlor.

Using photos, drawings, and film clips, the team will reconstruct the original design and engineering of the aircraft. They will document their progress and share the fruits of their research with the aviation public at and on Facebook.
