During the Hamburg airport days together with about 15 other historic birds this aircraft, although beautiful, suffered a nose gear fail due to a handling problem and an engine fail despite a T7 like avionics suite, numerous monitoring devices, 24(or something) inboard camera's and 15 million spend while all others left without a problem. Sigh...... guess you can't buy everything with money.

Back in the day, Grandpa had to walk ten miles uphill through the snow with 100 pounds on his back to get to school and back. Flying was no easier!
