SSF getting some Sun. New engine under way and installed just the attaching things to things to be done.

Maintenance will increase over a thousand plus hours, As she is a training machine fitting a new engine will see her right for a few years ahead. Original engine was sold whilst still on plane and in service so good deal all round.
