"new" nasa wb-57f

For those that are interested.

NASA is about to receive a newly rebuilt WB-57F, N927NA. It was removed from storage in 2011, shipped to Centennial Airport, near Denver and is now undergoing shakedown flights in Colorado Springs, probably Peterson AFB.

Check out this link for several excellent images.
NASA’s new WB-57F, N927NA, flies for the first time in 41 years | GAR scroll down about a page or so to see the story.

enjoy,

Swampfox

Thanks, would be interesting to see a model of that with this "repair color" scheme. Nice article on slurry bombers from one of the Colorado fires also.
