Kermit Weeks A-26 Project, Part III

Kermit Weeks posted these pictures (on Facebook) of the brand new 6 gun nose he had that will go on his A-26 project.

On the heels of the A-26 Video Part 2, we decided to outfit the airplane as it came out of the factory in WWII, which was with all the original wing gun packs and a 6-gun nose. Noses were interchangeable so we will also have on display, and for possible future use, a glass nose, as well as an eight-gun nose! (You can never have too many!)

After digging out the six-gun nose I had that, honestly, I didn’t even remember having, we discovered that other than a minor ding here and there, it’s BRAND NEW and has never been on an airplane! Wahoo!

New additions to the “Museum Lite” this Season include the B-26 Marauder, Sopwith Snipe, Fokker D-VII, Traveler 4000, P-51C and several others, plus we will have some new merchandise in the gift shop as well.

The B-24 will remain available for viewing.
