Around the Hangar

As stated, the changes around the Wing have been rather massive lately.  The best way to experience it is the stop down, these pictures only capture a portion of what it's like!
(Photos Thanks to Randy Bigler, Roell Painting and Andrew Hill)
An artistic photo by Andrew Hill of the B-25 in the hangar, just finishing up maintenance.
The BT-13 is almost ready to fly... I swear!

Bob Wright works on the BT-13's prop

The front wall was in desperate need of help
Roell painting came in and taped all of it off... on a 32' ladder!  No Thanks!
The final product... oil base coat with a latex cover... it looks amazing!

A lot of activity has been taking place a the hangar
And a lot still needs to be done
But the hangar is looking better every day!

Our new O'Club is coming together nicely!

And the new PX looks amazing, thanks to Glenn and Linda Franke! Glenn took care of the building...

And Linda made it look like a real gift shop!

Brad Hopkins, a member of the Army National Guard, offered to paint a mural on our new wall.  These are the sketches of two of the panels that will run the full length of the museum.
His sketches will then be airbrushed... this is the final panel (starting point for airbrushing)
The final panel, representing the close of the war, is complete, and looks outstanding!
