agree on that... On a side-note. What surprises me is that there has never been an F-84 restauration project. Relatively straight forward aircraft, and many "customers", as half of Europe's airforces have flown the beast. Quite a few airshow organisers/airforces would probably be willing to pay to get an airworthy one at their airshows...

and on topic: Again great stuff posted in this topic!!!
