I think we all know there's ONLY TWO airworthy at this time:

44-69972
 Wichita, Kansas; Airworthy (Doc)

44-62070
 Addison, Texas; Airworthy (Fifi)

As I recall, NEITHER were commissioned prior to 6-Aug-1945

nice bird.
Are there still pilots to fly them? How can you be certified? is this similar to a DC-3?

I love the detail here. Reminds me of the model airplanes I used to build.

Sometime around 1976, I was a member of the Confederate Air Force, based in Harlingen. I had dinner in the hangar with Jimmy Doolittle, and only about 1,000 other people. Bob Hoover actually had sex with a girl in the cabin of our Sabre Liner 40. He was a gentleman, and asked us to keep the bulkhead divider closed. His performance in our airplane was wonderful. A takeoff, then roll and landing on the runway was very impressive.
He knew how to keep it up. I remember Victor's wife being pissed about his buying FIFI.
