I'm guessing that restoring a B-29 is about as big as it'll ever get for a project.

Flying, probably. We had some loonies working on a B-36 for a while in the Fort Worth area, but not having a covered storage area ended up killing the attempt.

Let's hope it doesn't end up like Kee-bird in Greenland, three years work and a million bucks up in smoke and a priceless plane destroyed.

I think they'll be a little more careful with the APU tank this time...

if anyone gets started on a B-36 again I chip in... love to see one flying again... used to drive 600+ miles out to Ellsworth to watch - and feel 'em.

Beautiful! And a tribute to all those who worked the long hours to make it possible!

Not gonna happen. 52-2827 is at the Pima Air and Space Museum, Pima, AZ. NMUSAF reclaimed it after the fund raising for a shelter failed, and transferred it.
