Bruce Campbell didn’t waste any time and he got to work as soon as the plane “landed” in his backyard.  The most difficult thing that he had to do was to get the plane cleaned up and to remove all the rust.

Since the plane is really old, it was covered in rust in some parts. However, Bill Campbell was prepared for this and he got to work right from the day that he signed the purchase papers for the plane.
