    The ex POF Bearcat was sold by Beal/Smith’s estate in 1981 and joined the Fighter Collection . It has been airworthy in the UK ever since . That 1998 number is just a paperwork figure . It is now G-RUMM.

    This is what the original Ed Maloney/Air Museum Bearcat looks like now.

    My wife surprised me with this awesome Bearcat artwork (my favorite aircraft) for our anniversary after working with the artist for over a year!
