Well, hopefully we'll be taking Southern Cross to Normandy in 2024! Here's the link to donate if you can, it's going to be a huge deal getting a 70+ year old aircraft across the Atlantic twice. Any help is appreciated!

Also here's some more pictures of my hijinks around the hangar, we got Special Kay back on her gear, guns installed, and the T-33 went out for formation practice with an F-5 Tiger! Got some great photos!

Special Kay sure is a prickly looking thing up front with all those machine guns!
Glad to see your sticking with it! Have you thought about joining the Airforce! My cousin did, learned to fly fighters did 20 years and got out. Saw the world too. Then came home and did 25 years with Delta as a pilot. In retirement their doing very well house, cars, property, kids college educations all paid off in full.

That is actually my plan! I plan to go to college, get my degree, then enlist as a pilot (I'm NOT signing the papers until the recruiter offers flight school!)

We got the bomb bay doors installed today! We hooked it up to the hydraulic mule and the hydraulics all checked out, so on the doors went! Still a few fasteners to add and connect the actuators, but they're back on! Getting closer to flying!
