    Thanks for posting. This story has been posted before somewhere but it is a good update. To me, "Flies again" and "will fly again" are two very different things in the vintage aircraft restoration world.

    The brothers have had a lot of help from the BBMF over the years, and the last reports I read, some time ago, indicated that things were well advanced, with major components such as the main spar checked out and passed. Hopefully, we'll see her airborne in the not too distant future.
