Jason,

First, welcome to WIX. Second, congrats on your selection as the new B-24/B-29 squadron crew chief. Finally, I hope to get to come out in a few weeks, I will get in contact with you when I get a better idea of when I'll be able to "break free" of work and head that way.

Jason,
The loop antenna looks great. Congrats on the new position and thank you for keeping up the updates.
Quick question, is the loop antenna functional or just an asthetic component to make 'Ole 927 appear as close to original as possible?
Once again, CONGRATS!
Mark

I saw your avatar and was wondering if you are working on that aircraft as we speak is it an older photo?

For now it is purely asthetic...not sure if we will be able to use it in the future. There are a lot of projects on the table and now it is Air Show season and we need to get "OL'927" in the air. Trying to button up all of the ongoing projects like the pogo system Gary designed and finish sheet on the tail.
Thanks for the welcome and interest in these wonderful aircraft.

Here is John working away on Engine #4 cowling assembly

My big problem is that missing Engine #3

Hopefully, this little problem will be solved soon.
I was going to start de-fueling aircraft today, but we have bad weather. Need to look at a leaks on both wings and repair as needed. Tomorrow maybe a better day for weather. Daniel was in this weekend working on the POGO system and John has been here almost two weeks helping in so many ways I can't list them all. Volunteers are a huge help and I appreciate their efforts very much.

Guess I'm going to have to read the sticky again about the posting of pictures, because so far all I get is links when I drag them into post.

Cool pics Jason.

When you're in photobucket, you need the link that starts with [img]. Photobucket gives you the image tag already to plug into forums.

Here is a little help with the photos... You need to have image tags around the URLs and the URLs should end after the ".jpg"

Hi Jason, that picture is from August 07. I went on the restoration hanger tour at the NMUSAF. They let us get up nice and close to the Belle. Unfortunetly I am not involved in the restoration, just a fan. :wink:

Once again, thanks for keeping us updated on 927. :)
