Absolutely beautiful restoration. It the Fighter Factory open to the
public?

Technically, no, however, I have visited the Suffolk hangers many times and
have always been told to take a look around. I understand they are tighter
at the new VA Beach (Chesapeake ?) location, which was recently acquired for
storage of most of the completed aircraft. I believe tours can be arranged
thereif you call in advance.

I have alwys enjoyed stopping by the Suffolk hangers and talking with some
of the workers. Never a problem, and always lots of interesting stories on
how certain planes were found. The new location allows them more working in
the hangers room at Suffolk, with the completed planes no longer taking up
space.
