Here's a first short video from the restoration team. I have much more to come. We have cameras in the cockpit, on the right wing tank and on the belly just aft of the bomb bay. This short has a camera at American Aero filming the takeoff and me at the end of the runway for a flyover. Turn up the sound!

Thanks for the good wishes. We had two commemorative flights today. One to celebrate the first A-26 flight on 10 July 1942 and the second was to give two of the original A-26 Nimrod pilots the chance to fly their old airplane again. Tim and Jay were delighted to take the reins. It had been since 1969 that they last flew Kay. Our team was very proud to make this happen!! We have more maintenance flights to do and then we hope to find a good paintshop opportunity. We have posted video of the flights on YouTube and http://www.facebook.com/a26specialkay

Fantastic, great job folks! Especially great to hear two original Nimrods were given a proper homecoming!
