First engine runs are planned to take place early this week!

Here are a couple more recent photos of the cockpit. Obviously in a restoration like this, parts/materials from the original aircraft can only be found "here and there" in the restored aircraft - in the case of the cockpit, some of the original parts include the kick/skid plates on the floor, and the control column (what the yoke mounts to).
