    There are a couple of problems with these statements:
    over 80 Tigers are on the Canadian register - not really a rare aircraft.

    New wings, tailplanes, and control surfaces are readily available - ours is having some repair work done at the moment, and includes replacement of many of these parts, as it is cheaper than repairing the old ones
