Does anyone have access to the RAF status cards? It is the only thing that they are missing.

How often are the feather pumps supposed to be tested?

Is it not standard operating procedure to do a feathering pump exercise/check on all constant speed propellers on the engine run-up prior to take off?


One would hope they did.

DTD is progressing nicely. The invasion stripes are being applied to the fuselage and it looks like the wings will be reattached soon.

Here are the most recent shots of DTD posted by Benoit, he has finished polishing the port and starboard wings. Right people right place!

DTD is looking great. I like the hodge podge paint scheme representing various points in the planes history.

They've made amazing progress.

Today is the day!

There will be a live stream about 6:30 PM of the first flight.

It did make a brief Bunny Hop during high power runs on the runway yesterday.
