Airacobra ZK-COB Update

My final port of call at Ardmore way back on 11/12 18 was to Pioneer Aero where I found them torquing up the newly installed propeller.

The Airacobra was registered ZK-COB2 on 14/12/18 where it was revealed that it is a P 39F model with the c/n of 15-554.  I have since touched base with Paul McSweeny of Pioneer Aero who has advised that they have done a couple of engine runs but that a small technical problem means that some parts have to come from the US and that the first flight of the rebuilt fighter will not now be until January 2019.  Thanks for the info Paul.
