    Gee Bee Z engine test

    Came across this video of an engine test for the Gee Bee Z done at Fantasy of Flight earlier this week. I know the plane hasn't flown in over ten years. Sounds like Kermit Weeks got the hankering to fly her again. That would be cool to see. Also, anyone know what plane that is landing in the background when the Gee Bee is being pushed out?

    That is a Fieseler Fi 156 Storch, used by Germany in WWII for reconnaissance and as a transport for senior officers.
