    Just saw this video on Facebook from Warbird Digest. From what the caption says it has not flown yet, but probably will soon.

    Does it have a 3350? Hard to believe it's been 2003 since she's flown, long time, looks good, will be nice to see her back in the air. Do they plan on racing it at Reno in the future?

    I believe it does. There was something from Ken Dwelle a while back where he mentioned that they were keeping the 3350 since his dad was a Skyraider guy. Not to mention there are more spare parts around and I think I've heard its "easier" to maintain (relatively speaking).

    Any chance of it rounding the Pylons again? A sorta-stocker Bristol vs. Curtiss-Wright duel against 924 would be cool

    Can't wait to see it with wind under its wings again! I hope they do bring it back to Reno. Even stock Warbirds blasting around the Pylons are fun

    Not the best quality but we just received this short video from Ken Dwelle. WE 820, the Sea Fury formerly known as CRITICAL MASS has been undergoing engine run and taxi tests. The aircraft hasn't flown since 2003 and after a decade-long restoration, the first post-restoration test flight could happen soon.

    "Not the best quality......"

    It's from my Iphone, it's a good as it gets!
