Default Radial Skybolt in Texas

All,

I am looking at a Skybolt project with a M14 near Waco Tx. If anyone has any information regarding this project or its history I would appreciate hearing. You can contact me offline at Chuckellis90b@netscape.net or PM through the forum.

Chuck

Not that I can provide any information on it... but, do you have any more information you can provide to help someone identify this specific plane? N# ? Pictures of it ?

The project is in Temple, Tx. All I have regarding ownership is:

My friend Lance Henderson and his cousin, Ron Heracle purchased the Skybolt/Firebolt from someone in Bryan-College Station, TX. years ago. Iím sorry I donít know who that was.

No paperwork. Fuselage looks new, no indications fabric has ever been installed. Wings look new as well. Never been registered.

Also, Lance Henderson has built a couple of S-1 Pitts and a Starduster/Acroduster, maybe somebody knows of him?
