     A new life for N5548A...

Chris Chambers has the nose section from the wheel well forward, flaps. ailerons, elevators and cowlings in his hangar in Ft. Lauderdale, and the rest of the aircraft is still stored in Ocala, Florida. The restoration will begin soon and will have  Goose s/n 1150 completed in WWII Navy configuration. Once completed it will be with a new military history museum.

We will  give you periodic updates on Chris's efforts.
