    Default XP-82... See her while you can?

    Rumors about the XP-82 going to Russia more than likely after this airshow season. Only rumors, nothing confirmed yet but itís still sad to hear. Anyone gonna be seeing her? So far confirmed at Space Coast in Florida in a few weeks, Sun N Fun, and Oshkosh. Iíll be going to Thunder over Michigan really hoping she will stray that way after Oshkosh...

    Tom said all along it was built to sell. Going to take some DEEP pockets to get that thing.

    I will hopefully see it at Oshkosh this year.

    Isn't Pat Harker also rebuilding one?

    Will

    They plan to have it at OSK, and I believe at Sun N Fun as well. Harker is, but there haven't been any updates in several years.

    Thunder Over Michigan's theme this year is Gathering of Corsair's, I'm sure the powers to be at TOM would not decline an appearance from an XP-82.

    Although the focus is Corsairs, they're covering the variety pretty well with the 6 Mustangs and couple of B-25s already too. XP would be a nice add for sure and I guarantee it's being talked about

    Everyone is a little uneasy that it's the left-turning engine. Nothing confirmed yet
