    It looks really terrific. Do you plan to issue one with a Canadian paint scheme?

    A few corrections to your account of surviving Fireflies on your web page. First, the Royal Navy Historic Flight's Firefly WB271 crashed in 2003, killing both occupants, and was completely destroyed. I have heard that, because of Royal Navy policy, aircraft in which someone dies in a crash are not allowed to be salvaged and therefore the wreck was scrapped. It is all gone. Second, the Canadian Warplane Heritage Firefly WH632 did have an accident in 1992 and was repaired, but not as a static display; it is currently airworthy and active. Third, the Australian Firefly WD826 is not currently airworthy, but may be restored to fly again. WH632 and WB518 are the only Fireflies now flying.
