The Corsair82: 82% F4U-1A Corsair

The Corsair82 : Tony's New Struts: image_2.jpg
A view of my left leg, from the right side. A saw like a "Sawzall" was used to cut the bone away to shape it for the new parts. I was awake through the procedure. I elected to use an epidural. That means they numbed me below the waist. I still had some other Happy Stuff going through my system. The anesthesiology was performed by a friend of mine who I fly with, from time to time. He owns a T-6. We BS-ed a bit about flying while this was going on, though I don't remember a whole lot.
