T-33 Nene 10 Engine delivery to Ace Makers Yolo-based T-33 Airshow Performances in Davis California

Well, we headed out Thursday October 9th to deliver T-33 parts to Greg Colyer of Acemakers Airshow Performances. They are proud owners of two former Canadair T-33, now painted in US Airforce colors, and the second one in Korean War US scheme.

We brought two engines, and tons of other parts, including wing panels, and flaps, instruments and ejection seats.

These parts have been in our care for over ten years, and the NENE-10 engine was an integral part of Pearson Field Education Center’s youth education programs, as well as being a proud piece of their main display over the years.  It has inspired many.

The drive was done in open trailers, during hot and sunny weather.

Our evening departure was smooth sailing indeed~

Doing the drive with good weather was a really big plus. I followed the vanload with my Pathfinder, and we made excellent time. During the drive, I took the opportunity to grab a bit of video-

Once we had the two trailers binders removed, we stepped back while Greg pulled his aircraft out of the hanger, to give us room to unload.

Battlefind.com does some of the coolest things, and we get to interact with many collectors. Greg Colyer is no exception. He has quite a list of skills, and the flight displays performed are one of a kind. He now owns a second version of this aircraft that was once part of our family, and now, is on to professional demonstration use. It is currently located on the East coast.  Meanwhile,  in California, Battlefind prepares to unload our trailers of precious cargo. OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA
