Hopefully we'll see a Hurricane MkIId in BoB. It'll give those Tiger-busting Mustangs some competition.

That is a great site. I stumbled upon that site last year and I've spent a lot of time reading those stories.

Whether it was exhaustion, tiredness, hallucinations or a trick of the light, a strange phenomena occurred whilst flying up high above the clouds: Dad says he could clearly see gremlins dancing on the wing of his airplane. He was not afraid to admit this fact, dismissing mockery, and strongly believed that the small elf-like figures he saw happily dancing, could only be described as gremlins, and would not be told otherwise. (This story caught the imagination of us kids)
