From Ken Ramsay:
I am going to try a little different format this time.
The second LAU-61 rocket pod is starting to take shape.
Dan has installed one of the wing fences on the F-102 and is working on the second.
I have installed all of the support structure for the F-105s elevator section I am working on and formed the leading edge skin.
Dave installed the torpedo on the B-26 Excellent looking pylon..
The fixture for the F-86 fuselage is coming along. Now Chet and Jim have to figure out how to move the fuselage on the fixture. The 50 caliber guns for the F-86 are starting to take shape.
The rest of the Drake’s right landing gear assembly has been repaired and installed on the aircraft. The right pontoon is being repaired.
Work has started on the OV-1’s engines and nacelles. Trying to get the nacelles to fit on the engines is a challenge.
From Richard Willaman:
Few hours of work getting the GO-9 transmitter to the display area for the radio section
this morning. Display is not done yet. the receiver will be on a box to the left of the transmitter.
Just need to find a box or selves to sit it on and key and mic under the receiver. (photo above)
Posters will come later when made for the display. The new poster is on the wall. (photo)
The big tree is slowly being cut up to remove. Hard working MAPS volunteers doing the work. (photo)
The drive and parking lot has a new coating and lines painter. Looks great. (photo)
Ran into people looking for the B-17 for they thought it was at MAPS. Had to tell them it is 3 rights
down the road on the North side of the airport.
