pdawg and turbonut,
You are both correct. Took my day off yesterday and paid a visit to Yanks. I was already at the airport and since this thread started, I have become very interested in the Fury, so I had to see it in person. The museum claims to maintain their aircraft in airworthy condition, (which most are) but the Fury seemed to be just shy of flying. It was missing its' wingtips and a large panel on the belly of the aircraft. All the plumbing and electrical are in better shape than some of the planes I have flown. Also, its' air intake and exhaust openings were covered which led me to believe the engine was intact. This aircraft has only a total of 257 flight hours, so I'm holding out hope that they will make it airworthy and we may soon see it fly at the Chino airshow. I would be there in a flash!
