Kilroy was THERE as the F8F Bearcat flies again

On takeoff

About 10:30 this morning (01/15/03), on a beautiful Florida morning without a cloud in the sky, this magnificent war bird leaped into the sky as eagerly as she did 50 years ago. I was privileged to be at this private first flight along with Jim and Ann Fausz, the owners of Bluebird Aviation of Milton, Florida and representatives of Lone Star Museum of Galveston, the owners of the bird. Jim received the pieces-parts of the Bearcat a few years ago and, in a labor of love, returned her to pristine condition.
