We set a goal a while back to start the engine by September
15, 2003. After checking to ensure all the required systems were up and
running we started the engine for the first time in approximately 43 years on
September the 15th. All systems came online and worked successfully.
The engine ran great with very few bugs. It was such a beautiful day
outside that we took many photos.
