    Question Is any work being done on Furius?

    Anyone know if Furius is seeing any love?
    I had some high expectations crushed when she ground looped.
    Have heard very little about her since.

    "Air Classics" dated Oct. 2017 has a photo of it being stored in a hanger in Kenosha, Wis. I think it is owned by an AT-6 pilot. I'm sure someone on the forum knows who it is.

    Sounds like itís a long term project. Per the Woelbing Air Racing Page: Furias is a big project, but we are working on her a little each week. Slow but sure she will fly again.

    I was wearing one of the valley of speed furias shirts at Reno and Woelbing drove by me in their golf cart and complimented the shirt. I told him to please bring her back we all miss her and he replied I know, we are working on it. Goes along with what rforslund said. I also saw some pictures of her in the hangar sometime last year on Facebook that a guy that works on the planes took. She didnít look too much different than when she left Reno but I could be wrong

    Yes, work has started on Furias. How much, I don't know, but it has been started.

    Thanks and all noted on the info re Furias.
    Sounds better than hearing she is collecting dust in the back of some poor guys hanger.

    Cheers.

    The hangar also happens to be home to Miss Merced and Miss TNT.
