White 33

Randy,
Looks like Bill Klares got another warbird in the air. White 33 was flown by Frank Royal in WW II and he was on had for it's first flight and public unveiling. He's now 101 years old. I remember the pieces of this airplane in Bill's hangar at Rialto years ago and we were all trying to figure out how some of the wing rivets got bucked since it was an early model and the entire leading edge of the wing was intercooler. It's kind of neat to see it in the air after looking at that pile of metal years ago. I guess they got Stev-o-rino to do the flight testing... ;-)







--------------------
Best,
Evad
