Our A3 fuel trailer is back on its own wheels

Winter is a time when there is not much flying to be done, most of the aircraft and ground equipment maintenance is done and it is time to get on with the longer term projects.

One of these is the A3 fuel trailer, used during WW2 by all branches of the US armed forces. We’re putting it together from a complete wreck, and given the extreme difficulty of finding spare (and often missing) parts, it’s a time-consuming project. So any progress, however small, is important to us.

The trailer now has its wheels back, and despite all the parts being original and therefore eighty years old, everything works perfectly.
