BT-13 Getting Some Tinkering Done

Ryan Lunde and Mark Beam have been working hard on the BT-13.



...and the BT-13.

Ryan had this to say:

"Did some wrenching on a Pratt and Whiney radial today and have a new appreciation for the men who had to maintain these engines under fire 65 years ago. We, (Mark Beam and I), inspected the BT-13's fuel system and then moved to the ignition. Even getting the special tool on the rear spark plug leads was a chore. Then we cleaned and tested all 18 plugs. It has a periodic miss in flight."

The boys are excited to take the Bt-13 up in the air....now if only the weather would cooperate!!
