    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
