    Half right: afaik, the RN's Buccaneer never saw combat, only the RAF version in the Gulf in 91. But I'll grant it. Your turn.

    The Me-262 is in reproduction, I'm not sure though if that qualifies as 'still in production'.

    The aircraft is still built in the same state. C, D and K models and they will produce OEM parts for your 1940s model. Manufacturer name has changed.

    The Me 262 is a reproduction well because they didn't have the production certificate, it was in Washington and not Germany. etc.

    I have to admit, I have no idea, but the only aircraft that comes to mind with the mention of C, D, K models makes me think of the P-51 Mustang, but I don't know for a fact that it's still in production.

    Ironduke you are correct except for the production part.

    http://www.calpacificairmotive.com/biography.html

    "Over the years the business has grown to include North American P-51 restorations. We have developed processes and techniques for the fabrication of the P-51 and the TF-51 airframe.

    Through the U.S. Department of Transportation Federal Aviation agency the Limited Type Certificate LTC-11 for the North American P-51C, P51D and P51K was acquired by Cal Pacific Airmotive, Inc. The company then applied for and was issued Production Certificate No. 724NM for production of FAA approved airframe parts in accordance with LTC-11."

    They have their manufacturing certificate good with the local FAA MIDO office. For a couple of million and a year or 2. You can have a new production aircraft P-51 built to the data on the Type Certificate Data Sheet.
    Airworthiness certificate included and that is not experimental. You can see P-51 assemblies from time to time on the ramp of the Salinas Airport.

    The floor is yours

    Nov 1, 1911, an Italian pilot dropped 4 grenades onto a Turkish (Ottaman Empire) camp outside Tripoli, Libya.

    During the Battle of Britain, the RAF Spitfires had an issue with their carburetors when in a negative G dive, fuel would be forced out and engine power would be reduced or it would quit altogether. Who came up with a fix for this problem?

    Bonus: What nickname did the device get called?
