    Great video Eric. Maybe I missed it but I am wondering what is the significance of the number 42?

    Erik, thanks for sharing and thanks for your service. Very cool video and awesome build. I'm not done with my 33 Hot Rod and already starting to think about that Gen-3 as a next project.

    BTW, I took my Army Special Weapons training at Redstone Arsenal and loved the great thunderstorms y'all get there in Huntsville. We get much the same here in Northern AZ during monsoon season and it always makes me remember my time in Huntsville.

    The 42.... if you look at the tail number on the rear fender...26242... at the flight school the paint the last 2 digits of the tail number in BIG white numbers on each aircraft tail boom so that instructors car identify the air number from far away.

    242 is the tail number of the very first UH60V Aircraft prototype that flew in Jan... I am the tech lead for that program. So figured since these 2 were first... they could share the tail number.... trying get a picture of both of them on the flight line
