A plane of this age being able to fly again is a tremendous task of engineering. It is along the lines of the battleship Texas, launched 1914 and kept maintained in Houston. The WWI obsolete battleship Satsuma of the Japanese, the North Carolina here on the east coast of USA and even the Massachusetts in Fall River MA USA, somehow still afloat in spite of 50+ years of service. Keeping these ships and planes afloat and/or in flight is a remarkable accomplishment.
