I'm planning on going down there to see it late summer/early fall.

I'm hoping that for the right "donation" I can spend some time in the cockpit/i/smilies/16x16_smiley-happy.gif

This is the FW190f8 White 1 which has been sold to Dr mark Timken and is being restored to concourse flying condition by the "White 1 Foundation" which is now located at its own facility in Kissimee. I visited last October and was shown around the workshop on a personal tour, which seemed to be the norm. It is a fantastic opportunity for any wurger nut to get close to one of these magnificent aircraft and its component parts. The team are extremely helpful and enthusiastic, as you would expect and I would encourage anyone to visit. As reconstruction moves ahead this may prove to be one place where the cockpit visibility debate can be settled!!
See the White 1 website for further details photos etc. Sorry I don't know how to post links!

The link is:

http://www.white1foundation.org/

I just got an email reply from them asking about their progress. They are obviously IL-2 fans as they are very anxious to see what the revi site looks like from the cockpit as well as the rest of us. /i/smilies/16x16_smiley-happy.gif

But it will be some time before they are at that stage.

I only live about 30 miles from there and plan on making a stop in soon. /i/smilies/16x16_smiley-happy.gif

If you visit the site, be sure to get the White 1 skin for IL-2 from their main page.

-LO!

Damned...

Was on a 4 week vacation in the southern US and returned 2 weeks ago to Germany. We were in Pensacola, FortRucker, Mighty 8th-Museum (Savannah) and a tiny museum in Orlando, but we missed that one.

The one in Orlando had a B17 completely disassemlbed and allready restored 30%. The restaurated engines were worth 50.000$ apiece.....
When we were there, they testet the engine of a just completed P51 =) - wow, what a sound!!!!!
