F-40 Visiting the Lightning Cycle Dynamics Factory

In mid-July while travelling through California I was able to stop in Lompoc CA and visit the Lightning Cycle Dynamics factory.

Here is Tim Brummer and I holding the nose cone of my soon to be F-40.

The F-40 was being built so various pieces of it were in different sections of the factory.

Here is the tail frame assembly: (notice the Lightning X-2 hanging from the ceiling)

The P-38 frame had just been powder coated and pieces were hanging from a drying rack:

Visiting the factory was very cool!

Thanks Tim and company for showing me around.
