    No harm done. I obviously never knew my biological parents, but have no reason to be ashamed of my heritage.

    The Brit's like wood and glue.....Both the Mosquito and the Morgan are built with wood.. I really like both very much.....and the P-38 is one of my very favorite planes.

    Midnite...your folks must have been pretty smart....they made a smart kid.

    It wasn't so much that they "liked" wood and glue, as it was metals were in short supply, and it proved practical to build some planes from wood. Remember the woody wagons from this era? :)

    The Morgan is still made by hand and the frame is still made out of wood.....
