L29 Delfin Smiles

Some of the recent work at the Cold War Air Museum has focused on bringing one of the museum's L-29 projects up to flying status.

The group working on Bord 41 pauses in front of the aircraft to smile about how the work is progressing.

The sound of jet engines is a happy sound to the volunteers and to the airport fuel concession.

A total of four L29's were brought out, started, taxied or flown (several at the airport are already licensed and flying) over the weekend.

Following one of these engine and taxi tests, the photographer got the chance to get (almost) everyone in front of Bord 41 for the lead picture above.

Work will continue on the aircraft until it's successful airworthiness inspection, scheduled for the near future.
