    Hope they strengthen the wings, after the wrinkles that showed up on Czech Mate.
    Mr Awesome has been for sale for some time..............does this mean someone bought her and plan on racing it?

    Static display only. They have no plans to fly it, much less race it.

    Did they just buy Short Fuse Sallee or are they selling it? I almost thought for sure I saw it for sale somewhere recently. Sell it to put the money into racing Mr. A

    SFS is not owned by the museum. It has been on loan to the museum and displayed there when it is not out flying with the owners. I do not know if it has been for sale recently or not.
