First of all this replica set a new world speed, second of all no original GeeBee racer exists today therefore without the replica it would become obscure over the years, even today some knowledgeable in aircraft don't know about the GeeBee, maybe one day my dream will come true to be able to see one in person, isn't she just precious! Gorgeous paint job and markings! She is fantabulously awesome! Excellent shot by the photographer! Thank you!
