First shotgun start of our
First shotgun start of our 1945 FM-2 Wildcat BU 86774. Shotgun start uses original 4 guage shotgun shell out of NOS can. Wright 1820-56WA and Curtiss Electric prop C5325D.
In the description you should give a brief on what it took to get to this wonderful event.
They did the same shotgun start in the film Flight of the Phoenix...James stewart, Richard Atteborough, George Kennedy, Iain Bannen Where they used shotgun cartridges and it was a scene where you were on the edge of your seat....hoping it would start along with the cast even my body was dehydrated watching It.....They don't make them like this anymore testament to the designers and builders made to do a JOB.
what a treasure
Why was she grounded "in the late 1940's"?
Mechanical/electrical or airframe issues?
Since it will be flying again, I sure hope any mechanical/electrical and airframe issues were addressed.
For "not being started since it was grounded" she sure started quick after sitting near 70 years.
You must have flushed the fuel system and replaced fuel pumps, lines and filters.
I am surprised the engine was not locked up from sitting for so long.
Did you rebuild it?
I don't understand how exactly does that happen? I know there's no Buckshot or anything like that in it no projectile other than compression. It baffles me how it works.

The 25th anniversary
The 25th anniversary Sandlot Movie celebration comes to Kauffman! The Monarchs hat worn by Topeka actor Brandon Adams (Kenny DeNunez) "was a nice cherry on the cake."
Yeah Brandon ??
Good to see brandon on screen again ?
Yes my baby Brandon Adams is still fine as hell?
Man I have to get Brandon back I'm the game because there is so much in the industry right now that he would perfect for. He's coming back slowly and living well though.
