    I thought the airplane was at Sanders in Ione. Where was that video shot?

    I would venture to guess Tom Dwelle's place in Auburn, CA
    Glad to see the progress being made!

    Anyone else sad to see this? I respect their decision...its their airplane.
    But for me, Sampson has his locks cut off....this is no longer Critical Mass.

    I just deleted a post that was pretty uninformed and not very fair to the Dwelle's...

    This has been much discussed in other threads with direct commentary from the Dwelle family in-turn. I think their position was made fairly clear... Look at the half full glass... There's one hell of a lot better chance that we'll see the airplane around the sticks as currently configged...

    Go easy on the owners OK guys!?

    hmm was my post...just stating its all good. I think the title should be deleted and a new one added. "The aircraft previously known as "Critical Mass Update" Its no longer the same plane. Thats not a bad deal just facts. Its going to be an awesome 2 place Sea Fury. I had read that it wont be getting a race paint job either...I prefer but hey Im not the one writing the checks. Anyhow way off point. As I should have said in the first post...Awesome progress and look forward to seeing ANYTHING round the pylons.

    How cool is it that the Dwelle family and the Sanders have kept us in the loop on the restoration process? Does not happen to often. Thank YOU!

    Yea, the thread title might be a bit misleading but... she may have an extra cockpit and not look the same but I think as long as the Dwelle's own her, we're all going to call the AC Critical Mass..

    There really was only one sentence in your original post, regarding financial position of owner.. .struck me as inappropriate considering the down-to-earth folks the Dwelle's are.
