Does anyone have any recent information as to the status of this aircraft? I picked up a copy of the "Air Classics" that had a full spread story on its restoration and reappearance at the 1984 Madera, CA, USA, airshow. Last reported location is with Kermit Weeks.

I think in the hangar at Aero Trader in Chino. Been under repair for many years. Not sure it is much of a priority.

BDK,
Thanks for the lead on Aero Traders. Chino is only 100+ miles away and I'll see if I can confirm and maybe grab a pic the next time I am up that way.

Yes, give them a call and ask if you can visit. At least they should be able to confirm that it is there. I'm also at Chino Airport on the weekends sometimes working onmy T-6 project.

Whistler's Mother is indeed at Aero Trader at Chino. Kermit himself recently posted an update on FB and there is a YouTube video of him doing a wal-around as well. Wrenches are being turned and it appears to be moving along nicely
