P-47 Snafu - First Flight

Running a few weeks late to post the pictures but as you can see the P-47 Thunderbolt named "Snafu" belonging to The Fighter Collection has flown!  It flew April 21 and is now flying its test time off so that it can fly the summer airshow season.  Very exciting to see a "razorback" P-47 in the air.  Friends of The Fighter Collection Blog has a short video clip from the first flight.  Click on the link below.

As more pictures become available I will post links or watch the Plane Talk forum.  Thanks to Brian Marshall for allowing us to post his photos.
