guess he never tried to keep an MG running in a wet climate.

saw the mosquito on the news the last few days as they talked about getting it finished. amazing project! must have been magic to hear that thing fly at the air show yesterday. meanwhile, the spitfire apparently had to do a belly-landing. glad to hear it was a replica and not the genuine article, but still, ouch!
