    P-26 - Yay!

    And with regard to the Corsair's gear problems - yes the gear was too bouncy. Most of NZ's Corsair losses were due to landing accidents. And the NZ loss statistics were typical of the type.

    IIRC the oleos were fixed in later models.

    I have info of 191 sumthing Corsairs destroyed due to enemy action, compared to 900+ in accidents. I wonder why this thing was nicknamed Ensign Eliminator?

    O, how I want to hold you,
    To feel your breath
    And hear your laughter in my ears.
    To look into your eyes
    And see myself in there.
    Caress you with my lips.
    To hold your hands in mine
    And find the hidden smile in your dimple
    That makes you irresistible
    And stops the breathing in my chest.
    To be with you when you are weeping,
    To wipe away the tears and take away the sorrow.
    To watch you while you are sleeping
    Like there is no tomorrow.

    And with a tender kiss to wake you up.
