    Bummer that the other 5 are lost to time (actually Cavalier). The others were A68-7, -30,-35, -72, and -87. I really have to wonder if any of these airframes are still around just wearing a Cavalier data plate now. They would be late builds most likely, but it would be cool to find out.

    The others are all listed on WIX, but no further info is given. They are missing from the MustangsMustangs registry as well (The Cavalier Mustangs are all earlier builds)

    This is a pretty cool website that talks about the 6.

    How about tuning a ME-109 for Reno ?

    Far too rare Juuka… would be cool to see one round the pylons however! Even seeing one fly would be wonderful.

    One year at the Watsonville Fly-In, heard a Merlin overhead. Expecting to see a Mustang, but turns out it was a Hispano Buchon. Ran to see it land, taxi and park. Who climbs out? Mr Skip Holm. That man can FLY!

    Switching gears; any word on those buried Spits in the Far East?
