    This appeared in my hometown newspaper this morning and I thought to share. It isn't really "new" news, the recovery took place years ago, but anytime a warbird is featured on the front page of any newspaper I cheer a little bit inside. Cheers.

    I am not exactly sure why it had to be published twice, but in the interests of completeness the other url is here.
