David L and Beverly Helms and Pete Norwood personally traveled to Holloman AFB and met with the principals involved including Brig. Gen. Alexus G. Grynkewich, Deputy Director, Global Operations. He serves as the Joint Staff focal point for cyber and electronic warfare operations, information operations, special technical operations and sensitive Department of Defense support to government agencies. We met Colonel Houston R. Cantwell, Holloman 49th Wing Commander, as well as TSgt Chance Cole and the 7 individuals currently directly & indirectly caring for the City of Grove's F4E while also dismantling and sending all the remaining F4's to the target range. Ours is the very last F4 scheduled to be released for public display. What a God Send that we were chosen by GSAXcess to receive her! We inspected her current condition as well as evaluated and requested several components to be added in order to best restore her to the most authentic historical presentation possible. We have many more steps involved with that, but each of the principals has given us their commitment that our requests will be achieved as best possible.
