"Spiffy" Award - Jerry Beaty


This years "Spifft" Award goes to Jerry Beaty for his beautiful restoration work on 655, an E model. The restored ship looks like it just rolled out of the factory, complete with an original exterior paint scheme and original plackards. The instrument panel is beautiful too. Believe it or not, this ship was a wreck one year ago. The tail, the fuselage and one wing were badly damaged.
