P-51C Close to Flight

The Paul family in Idaho is getting close to flight with the restoration of their Razorback P-51C. Pictures were posted on the WIX forum of the ship. This ship has caused some confusion over the years as being noted as a North American A-36. From what I understand the Paul family sold off their stash of parts to an A-36 and built up this C model Mustang from other parts and new build pieces. Hope to post the news of the first flight soon!

170 Flies and Texas Antique Fly-In


Took off early Saturday morning on the 170s first post paint and post annual flight. After a once around the patch I checked it over. All was well so launched off to Gainesville for the Texas Antique Fly-In. Very low attendance but fun to see a few new ships. For a few pictures from the event click here. Highlight of the event for me was seeing the Fairchild 24. Nice restoration of a 1947 TEMCO built ship. The day heated up fast so I flew home before lunch. Feels good to have the 170 flying again. Great outing to see some vintage flying machines.

GeeBee R-1 Project Underway


In thumbing thru the latest SPORT AVIATION magazine I came across a short article about a GeeBee R-1 project. The R-1 is the 1340 powered racer so this will be quite the beast! (Edit - the link to the web site has been removed.  The project web site has disappeared.  Sorry!  Maybe one day the R-1 replica will just show up at an airshow near you.)

Another Time Web Site Overhaul

The new web site layout is now online! About two months worth of work went into the overhaul of the FLYTOANOTHERTIME.com site. Take a look and let me know what you think.
