Just happened to be in town so I cruised by Stead. Pretty quiet. Saw the Bear tucked away in her lair and being lovingly attended to by her crew. Personally, I'm a Strega fan...........but the way the Bear looked, the Witch better bring her A-game in Sept.

So Strega was flying in Reno, or just flying?

Does the Bear look any different on the outside? How can you make an assertion like that from a drive-by? :dunno:

That's a pretty content-free post.

sorry.....the systems-guys swore me to secrecy. Go check it out, maybe you'll see something I missed..............................if you'd have told me beforehand what you wanted to see, maybe I could fill you in......

I know they did some work on the wing inlets and had some new paint thrown on those. They are getting the Bear ready for the record from what I understand. New paint on the wing inlets looks pretty cool.

Strega flying? Last weekend I was told the motor was out and the prop was being re cuffed...

Maybe it was Dago! :thumbsup::thumbsup::thumbsup: Only if it was a TF they saw. Maybe it will be in Chino with Stiletto and the RB-51.... er I mean Diamond Back and Wee Willy II.

According to some, if it was Dago it would have been too fast to see...

Gotta start keeping my ears focused if there is a possibility of Bear in the air. Not that it can be missed for miles.:D

Strega is home in Shafter. Engine out & prop off.

Well to tell you all the truth, I am very happy that that wasn't Strega I saw. The question now is what was it???? If we mistook it for Strega... Almost 100 percent sure it was a heavily modified P-51.:D:D
