Just a small correction; she's a C-121A/L-749, not a "super" [L-1049.]

Wait for the Swiss a/c to see a "Super" flying in Europe, but don't hold your breath.

Congratulations to all involved with the Dutch restoration. It has taken huge patience and dedication to get there!!!

G'day :D

Me favourite aeroplane! After the Spitfire...
