|The TBM is a WWII Grumman designed torpedo bomber built by General Motors. It has had extensive sheet metal rework to return it to the war time configuration. The interior and exterior have been repainted. At the present time it is undergoing a complete electrical rewire. It will require complete replacement or overhaul of all engine accessories, cockpit instrumentation, propeller and possibly the engine. It is planned to return it to flight status in about two to three years.|
