Dennis Dogget
RAAF Amberley Museum & Restoration Facility

Dogget is passionate about restoration, and has worked on several projects for the RAAF, including the restoration of A6M2 Zero, A-20 "Hell'N Pelican II" and Catalina at RAAF Amberley. He believes that aircraft should only be restored with complete accuracy to their original condition. His attention to detail and dedication was the driving force in the meticulous recovery and restoration of six A-20's from Papua New Guinea, despite budgetary restraints and often wavering commitment. Today, these restorations are three of the most impressive aircraft displayed in Australia.
