Once in a Lifetime opportunity

Well this is one of those things most of us just dream about. However at my young age of 25 i may not ever get this chance again. You see there is an aviation museum being built here in vincennes. I will be working on a WWII C-47 transport plane tomorrow, if we can. I wish we would have worked on it today. but who knows what the weather will do. But anyway here are a few teasers i took today.

I like to fly!
I just wanted to say thank you. Nowadays, history just isn't appriciated as much as it should be. Especially WWII aircraft. Honestly, I'm sick and tired of only hearing about P-51's and Spitfires. C-47's were the backbone of Europe, and are greatly underappriciated nowadays. Restoring aircraft like this needs to be done. Leaving history behind to rot in some boneyard is just rediculous. Especially with a plane this historical.
If you are ever in need of some more hands, my dad and I would definately come down for a weekend or two to help out.

Keep it up, and keep us updated on how it goes!,
