With the HOK-1 on display, the next restoration project is the Kaman K-16B, which has been on display outdoors at NEAM for many years. Beyond paint and corrosion control, the goal is to seal the aircraft from water and animal intrusion. In mid-July the tires were replaced and the aircraft was steam-cleaned. With the initial cleaning done, the K-16B was brought into the restoration hangar and the work will begin.
