Glad to hear you're getting back to normal.

Why? Is it the "acting" or the "normal" that causes concern!

Hoadie's mental state aside, here is a list of the surviving Mossies.

If you believe the internet (and who doesn't) several of the airframes listed could eventually return to the skies.

It is hard for me comprehend what the term "normal" and Hoadie have in common.

That any of the wooden construction airframes are still airworthy is a testament to the wood working technology of the era.

Germany fielded a number of wooden construction airframes or major assemblies But allied bombing destroyed the factory that made the best quality wood glue for the purpose.
Without this glue airframes built using a substitute failed in testing, leaving the NAZI without a mass produced aircraft to successfully counter the Mosquito at high altitude.

PS
The mossies nose guns had such a terrific muzzle blast that when the pilot fired a sun shield deployed in front of the gunsight so he would not lose his night vision.
