I spent today at VFM helping "the guys" work on B-25 Pacific Prowler, getting her ready for this year's air show and tour season. The big job today was hangin the prop on the right engine. Here is a selection of poor quality photos for your viewing pleasure.

Check out this great pitot cover! :lol:

And now, on to the maintenance. . .

I think he is calling 'Information' for the number to Pratt and Whitney :lol:

Sorry the 'artwork' is not more in line with the heritage of this aircraft
