Visited Duxford (RAF Museum)in 1996. Turned a corner and THERE WAS A FULLY FLYABLE MISQUITO! Asked HOW THEY COULD HAVE IT? The docent asked me WHY I asked that question. "Because, they are ALL GONE, none left, period. Plywood plane, fell apart after the war." Well, back in 86-87 someone opened an old, sealed up sub level warehouse in London. A variety of WWII equipment was found. Including all the engines, cockpit, landing gear, etc. for TWO Misquitos. I asked, what about the rest of the plane. "Well Yank, it's made of plywood right?" Yes sir, I answered. "And we have the plans!" I said, "And you have a woodshop!" "Very good Yank!" he replied. THEY REBUILT ONE WITH THE ORIGINAL BLUE PRINTS IN THEIR OWN WOODSHOP. Makes your heart warm.
