P-47 Crew Chief and a Maintenance Lesson

While detouring through the Vintage Aircraft circle at the Red Barn, Storm and I strike up a conversation with Bob.  He is one of the skilled aircraft mechanics who helped restore the 1936 Ryan ST/STA which won the Antique Champion Gold Lindy at EAA Airventure 2016.  Storm and I fall in love with this World War II P-47 Crew Chief and I am sure that you will too.

  1. I am so sorry I missed that!

    I did get a picture of the Thunderbolt though, if you want it.
