Imagine, in a million or so years, after we've all blown ourselves to smithereens:

Aliens come to earth and find the petrified remains of a Mosquito airplane. God I'd love to see that.

Try reading the posts and not just watching the images, It wont fly as some of the parts are too damaged to take dynamic loads on the airframe.

Waldo.Pepper, I hope that this answers your question. I found this picture at the museum's official website.
