  1. Anyone know if this airplane was recently sold? I am familiar with it from north Texas fly-ins, but it seems like in the last couple of months, it's been flying out of Brenham, TX, so I was wondering if the owner shown on the registration is correct.

  2. I heard it is a recent for a person who wants to upgrade to a WW2 fighter, but did not have enough tail dragger time. Think it is at Brenham, TX.

  3. It is in Houston Texas being repaired.
