    That was cool (haw haw). I hope since they could get the P-38 to fly after it was stuck in an iceberg, I hope they can get this one to be atleast museum quality.

    She certainly will need a lot of work (and love) is she is ever to get back in the air again.

    EDIT:

    Yep, you are right there are about 6 flying in the UK. I know of at least 2 in the US. I don't think there are too many more than that, so I am guessing maybe a dozen or so.

    I don't think there are any flying today. There have been rumors of a restoration, but I don't know where, if true.
