#855 flies again!

Attached is a picture of my Seabee. It is ship #855, originally test flown May 20, 1947. It was parked, for unstated reasons, in autumn 1969. I acquired it October 10, 2012, in a disassembled condition, from Michael Daubenspeck, who is the son of Jack Daubenspeck. I have since restored it into a flyable aircraft, but not to a “like new” condition. Some its scars still show. The original engine has been overhauled and the propeller has been updated with the recommended changes required by Hartzell. It completed a successful test flight on July 6, 2016 and added one more to the number of Seabees on the planet that fly.
