That is one good looking plane.
It’s impressive what a group of dedicated volunteers can bring back to life these days.

Sexiest airliner ever devised by the mind of man!


“Government has three primary functions. It should provide for military defense of the nation. It should enforce contracts between individuals. It should protect citizens from crimes against themselves or their property. When government-- in pursuit of good intentions tries to rearrange the economy, legislate morality, or help special interests, the cost come in inefficiency, lack of motivation, and loss of freedom. Government should be a referee, not an active player.” - Milton Friedman

As I understand the whole of the article I don't think so, they are creating a display. Kermit Weeks has one in Lakeland and it is airworthy
