Right, it's my understanding that the wheel alone has been her propulsion (no conventional propellers or Z drives). With this news about the wheel/fantail rebuild, I just wasn't sure what all they had done! It would seem too costly to have fit her with screws now(?). I agree, the new wheel construction looks heavy enough to be for actual use.

There is an interesting NTSB report about her engine room fire in '08 here:
