We have not been given any useful info by the air force on the subject, and from the answers we have been given by some others, it seemed that its very hard to get them off. It's to the point where if we can't get info on this soon, we will have to cut the wing off the plane to get it back here, which none of us want to do.
If anyone has any useful info, even if it's just on what manuals to try and get, it would greatly help as we are very limited on time as we have already been contacted by the Pentagon.
I was told on the warbird information exchange forum (which I have a thread going there as well) that the bolts may be vertical and may be accessed through the engine compartment. Can anyone confirm this?
Here's our plane:
