As far as I know its standing on its gear, has engines, but no outer wings yet. I think the wiring is being run as well. They are making headway, but its not fast.

This is how it looks now. The pic just floated across my FB feed. Pic courtesy of John Tokash.

The last up date I heard was the outer wing panels are about 50% done. They have made templates but need more $$$$ to have all the rubber fuel bladders fabricated. A donor stepped up to pay for one engine rebuild and they need to secure funding for the other. Electrical work is proceeding.
