Fantastic to see a truly historic machine being resurrected, restored to fitness and displayed for what she was meant for!
I too hope to witness her in "flight"!!

It really is so impressive in the flesh, Cary. Not only the visual aspect but the roar of the Orpheus.

On Wed. Evening, Ted Walsh probably got it up to around 170mph on the first run which really is about the absolute max. for Lake Fad...

Its fabulous work but I hope they dont push her too far- I think she is unsound at high speeds, and certainly when slowing down. Another accident is waiting to happen. Its a treasure.
