I was actually more surprised to see mention of the Jumo being worked on for Jerry Yagen's Flugwerk -190D and how advanced the BMW 801 is for Collings' Fw-190F.

Me too - both those made me gasp, especially the sight of how complete the 801 appeared! Great videos...what an amazing place to work.

Doesn't the War Eagles Air Museum also have a few Tu-2s in storage? (Not including the example on display)

Very nice. I just don't understand having a business like that in that state though, so many restrictions, and number 1 reason Ray moved out of there.



Who is Ray? Don’t just post one word and expect us all to get it.

I'm guessing he's talking about Ray Anderson, from Anderson Airmotive. Ray used to have his operation in California.


Thank you. - ah yes know who that is, just couldn’t remember with no other clues. Pi
