Any chance for an end of the year update? We haven't seen anything since September.

Life is good!

To all of our faithful followers.

I apologize for the infrequent updates but with expanded wing duties and a host of other activities in my life I hope you can forgive.

I started this post 9 years ago! I am in my 14th year of working on this wonderful aircraft. Yesterday we completed our weight and balance. Tomorrow we will bring her out for some taxi and system checks. We are just a few DAYS away from flight!

As soon as that date is certain I will let folks know. Also guys and gals our website is updated almost every day. You can follow us there. Check it out.

Dan

Dan,

I want to Thank you for keeping this thread alive! I have been following it from the beginning and lived update to update. It even convinced me to drive from San Diego to Camarillo when I was in California on business to see the progress and aircraft of the SOCAL wing. I was very impressed. I hope all goes well and the aircraft flies for many years to come to honor the Navy/Marines vets that flew the PBJ during the war.

I hope I can see it fly one day, any plans to bring it to Oshkosh since the CAF tries to have a good showing at these event?

So what is the next project the SOCAL wing is going to take on? Keep the momentum going!

Thanks again
Eric

Wishing much success to the entire "Semper Fi" crew for Sunday's first flight!

Sure wish I could be there. :(
