In 1996 a group of enthusiasts led by Eugeniusz Pieniazek commenced work on building the replica of RWD-5. This aircraft, although with necessary modifications, was made famous by Stanislaw Skarzynski's transatlantic flight of 1933.
The group comprised of designers, craftsmen and numerous volunteers completed the project on August 25, 2000, and on that day the airplane took to the air. Several members of the original team are now active in their newest undertaking: a flying replica of the legendary RWD-6 that carried Zwirko and Wigura to their victory in Challenge 1932.
