Bringing a dinosaur back to life.
Al wanted to see if there was any life left in the old girl before we took her down for restoration so after two days of Glenn's efforts, he started the Wright-440 up yesterday and ran it for a few minutes.
The airplane now goes into his shop and we'll take it down for restoration starting tuesday. The airplane was a former jump plane, I believe up in Washington state. Glenn is going to restore it as close to factory new as he can.
You can see a video of the engine run at:
