Project Manager, writes:
I am the new Super Guppy program manager replacing Frank Marlow,
who retired last February. I thought I would drop you a quick email
to let you know that the NASA 941 is still very active with multiple
missions through the end of 2012.
We are back in business moving V-22 fuselages from Philly to
Amarillo for final assembly, as well as delivering various shuttle
artifacts to museums as they come available. Itís an exciting time
for us as we move into a new era at NASA, one that I am sure will
include the Guppy for many years to come.
I am happy to announce that we will be bringing the Super Guppy
to the Dayton Air Show, July 22nd to 24th, so if youíre in the neighborhood
come on by. If you have any questions, feel free to contact me anytime.

From our friend Stu:
The satellite doing mapping for Google Earth seems to have captured
N941NA at DMAFB. My understanding is that this imagery is around
6 weeks old.
Unfortunately the satellite cameras totally overexposed the imagery
so everything light colored is blown out, but the SG is visible
and the T-38s are visible. Cheers.
From our friend Barry Quince:
If you can call this an update,as you will see not much change
fronm the last photos i sent.On the day i took the photos no one
was working on the aircraft,still only one engine fitted,though
maybe two other engines in the crates?
