Our F-86F restoration is nearing completion of it's 10-year effort. Located at Classic Fighters shop in Titusville, FL and we hope fly it prior to year end. Good news, bad news area is electrical. A previous owner decided to gut the entire electrical system-every wire (3500) and component! So, in addition to a usual "ground-up" restoration, we are completing a 3-year new wiring system! Ugh! The paint scheme is marked for the top USAF Korea ace-Joseph McConnell's "Beauteous Butch".
