Our first appearance will be at the AOPA Reginal Fly In at Missoula, MT. Kay is returning to her roots since previous owner, Lynch Air Tankers was a Montana Company. Denny Lynch was involved in the making of the movie “Always” which featured A-26’s and the AOPA folks are going to have a visit up to Libby where part of it was filmed. Then we will continue to Seattle for an overflight of the Museum of Flight’s new Vietnam Memorial. Should be back home for a couple of weeks before leaving for EAA AirVenture at Oshkosh. This is her first visit to the land of Wisconsin. Returning home July 25 so if you want a chance to see her all dressed up for the dance, better be there early in the week. We are planning to have two AF vets who flew the airplane during the war in SEA take her up for the Tuesday Airshow.



Looking forward to the Warbirds in Review session with Special Kay, and ESPECIALLY looking forward to seeing her FLY in the Tuesday afternoon show on July 24, before she departs for Texas early Wednesday, July 25!

Between the weather and a mechanical problem, we didn’t make it to Missoula unfornately. We were really looking forward to seeing a lot of old Montana friends. We did make it to Seattle for that great event at the Museum of Flight. Kay will be doing a training flight Saturday morning, getting loaded with her new pylon ordnance and then participating in the evening Cedar Creek Lake Airshow. Should be an exciting day for our crew. As soon as this is done, prep for the expedition to Oshkosh will begin. EAA has just released a trailer for the Warbirds in Review featuring Kay. Can find it on YouTube. We are excited to finally get the chance to show what we have been working on for the last eight years. She is truly one of a kind with a great story to tell.

I was at the Museum yesterday. The crew had Kay loaded out with a full complement of underwing ordinance (rocket launchers, bombs, nape tanks), and the nose hatch was open to display the very realistic .50 gun installation. She looked bad-azz for sure! She sounded bad-azz when they towed her outside for some engine runs on the ramp, too! If you're going to Oshkosh, be sure to visit Kay. You're in for a treat!

Congratulations to Jim and the Kay Krew. She looks magnificent!
