Checked in with our friends at the Furias camp and found the beast hibernating quietly... though keeping some unusual company....

(BTW, the blue tail behind Furias is a de Havilland Comet. One of about 8 left in the world and another truly amazing machine of its time...)

Hello Kraz, why is the Furias over at the restoration hanger?

P.S. have you seen the Me-262

I suspect that Furias is at the Restoration center because Bill has his Folke-Wolfe in the hanger. W/ the new engine in Furias and as much work as they did last year, I suspect that it will be a fairly quiet summer for them.

I did get to see the ME-262's. Simply Awesome! What an incredible undertaking and the one that they are currently doing engine runs on (w/ anticipation of a flight late spring/early summer) looks amazing. I was able go through the shop and walk all around it adn talk to the folks there. However, they are being extremely tight on NOT letting any photos out. I am working that angle though... so stay tuned and keep your fingers crossed!
