Hi well she should be in the States by now and hopefully will get the attention she deserves and restored to high standard. I hope there is no intention to fly her again as one crash is enough lol.

Actually, a plane that is flown has a much better chance of long term survival. A plane left on a museum floor has a greater chance of being neglected.
