The renovation of the aircraft took over 7,000 man-hours of labor. Miss Virginia has received a new avionic suite, new instrument panels and a new right-side engine. All propellers, carburetors and oil coolers have been overhauled.
The firewall forward hoses have been replaced as well as all the control surfaces, including new fabric covers. The aircraft has also had some aesthetic restoration including minor repainting, significant polishing, the installation of many new interior panels and a significant airframe inspection.
The aircraft was named Miss Virginia to honor both the military and the state of Virginia. Miss Virginia was the name of the P-38 Lighting that shot down Japanese Admiral Yamamoto in 1943.
