    Those old auto pilot panles were usually square. A lot of old DC-3's have blank plates covering them up these days. It still might not be four engines. Once the DG and AH are moved from the...

    The cart pit is located just north of the exhibit buildings. There won't be any deliveries there until right before the show. I usually end up shuttling carts and scooters down to Vintage...
