Current State of Restoration

The aircraft has been partially fueled and checked closely for leaks, with none occurring.

The fuel system is currently being fine-tuned prior to pressurization and engine start.

Turbocharger casings are now installed on all four engines.

Engine exhaust system installations are nearly complete.

Final avionics components are ready to install, including the intercoms required for ground and air operations.

A Federal Aviation Administration review of the Aircraft Inspection Plan is in progress.
