(At the time) Race 57 is the only stock F2G still flying in the world and it is a historical treasure. The Super Corsair may do demonstration flights at the Reno Air Races for the enjoyment of people who love aviation history, but it probably will not race again. Robert Odegaard rebuilt the landing gear, did all of the restorations inside the engine cowl and supervised post restoration reassembly of the aircraft. Robert is a mechanical genius.
Julie White recovered the elevators and rudder in her Aero Services shop at Eloy. Julie's workmanship is unsurpassed. She not only attached the fabric with the original recessed wires, but she also rib stitched the fabric to the rudder and made metal cap strip fasteners for the elevators. John Lane sent gap seal material for the elevators and rudder to Julie. To say the least, Julie's fabric job will never be a concern! The pinking tapes are absolutely straight and no seams are visible. Julie's recover job is a work of art! [Warbirds.org]
