A place where restoration project-type threads can go to avoid falling off the main page in the WIX hangar. Feel free to start threads on Restoration projects and/or warbird maintenance here. Named in memoriam for Gary Austin, a good friend of the site and known as RetroAviation here. He will be sorely missed.

I see the LSFM website has been updated and the Hurricane shown at the paint shop and Spitfire as flying. Is it back in the air? Also I have a spare gun camera.

Well she is going back together really well. Every thing is back on for now except the cowling. John from the paint shop has been doing a great job with all of the small detail touch ups. Some possible tests flights this afternoon and hopefully she might be back at the museum by tomorrow evening. I will try and get some more pics up by the weekend. These last few weeks have been exhausting!!!

A friend has been coming by the hangar from time to time taking some great shots. For those of you keeping an eye on the progress, you might have seen this thread on another forum. Im glad there were people around like John who could take more progress pictures! We had lots of help along the way!! GREAT JOB EVERYONE!
