Last week we complete maintenance (MX) by replacing the fuel pump on the right engine and addressed never ending oil leaks. Placid Lassie us currently at Oxford-Waterbury Airport (KOXC) in CT. Sunday morning the plan is do a test flight and get one of the pilots on the team current with three take offs and landings.
This is also the week of Arsenal of Democracy in Washington, DC which Placid Lassie is proud to take part along with 75 other WW2 airplanes. The current operating plan is to depart KOXC at 3pm on Tuesday and fly south to Culpepper Airport (KCJR) were we will be based with most of the other airplanes. Meanwhile both B-29s, a B-17, a PBY-4, a C-46 and a C-47 (Miss Virginia) will be at based Manassas Airport (KHEF). Wednesday is briefings. Thursday is a practice flight with airplanes starting to take off around 10:30 and landings starting around noon. Friday, Sept 25th is the event. Take off times start at 10:30 and first landings at 12:00. We expect to fly south down the Potomac, and then fly on the south side of the Mall.
