    (Building a replica B-26 radio equipment rack and radio position similiar to the Smithsonian "Flak Bait" exhibit on the 2nd Floor of the Air and Space Museum)


       An Obsession of sorts but never the less a radio project. And as it developed the Command Sets and other aircraft radios came off of the shelves and out of those dark musty hidden secret cardboard boxes and appeared out into the open and were finally used and displayed with dignity on a "Flak Bait Rack" and that is good.

    Please note. The Smithsonian Flak Bait display on the 2nd floor of the Air and Space Museum has been moved to the Mary Baker Restoration Hanger and will be united with the rest of the aircraft for restoration of the "entire" aircraft.
