    There was a booth, and she was there! I got to chat with John and have a look at the bird for the first time, it was rather emotional for me. I walked away with a patch and a great t-shirt - I only wish I could have bought more.

    John confirmed they intend to continue with the rebuild and chase records

    I saw that they were trying to raise some funding to come out and have a booth. I don't know if that got anywhere.

    Has the team shared any news about any plans for next week? It would be great to meet the team and get some merch

    I could watch these every week of the year:

    It is interesting to see where the races will be held in the future.

    I have no idea if they will be there or not. They might be there, I just don't know if they will have a booth or anything.

    Really enjoy the progress you all have made. One of my all time favorite race planes. I love the idea of an original designed racer. It had and will have so much potential as a racer and record breaker.

    From my understanding, they are building it to the last iteration specs as best they can. There will be a few minor changes that advances in technology have allowed, but aside from those, the goal is to get it as close to what it was when it crashed as possible. They fully intend to race it.

    Yes It looks very close to the "sit in it an make engine noises" phase of construction.

    It would have been great to see it in the tent at Reno this year, but I'm hoping this means we're closer to seeing it on the ramp some Sunday afternoon soon making its own engine noises.
