    It’s actually a Spit and a Hurricane, Greg, and I reckon there’d be at least a dozen airworthy Spits over there now.

    Have a bunch more pics from that day downstairs which I’ll post some more of later. :)

    Actually, Brian, I just renewed my insurance and they were happy to up the value again.

    Won’t be long and it’ll hit the magic $50k!
