Thunderbolt Restoration Progress



The Fighter Collection is making good progress on the restoration of their P-47 Thunderbolt.  The hope is that it will fly this year in time to make a few showings during this airshow season.  One of a few rare "Razorback" models, this Thunderbolt will be a great addition to the line up at Duxford as the type flew many missions from that famous airfield.  We look forward to seeing the paint scheme applied and it thundering into the skies once again!  Special thanks goes out to Brian Marshall for permission to post his pictures taken just a few days ago. More of Brian's pictures are posted on the Plane Talk forum here... http://forum.planetalk.net/viewtopic.php?t=10196
