I'm not the one that compared people who loved it enough to take the time and money to restore something from the rubbish heap to share their passion
with everyone else to a guy who was willing to deliberately destroy something for his ego.
Again, if you have any evidence at all that the pilot or aircraft was not safe to fly, present that and make a case.Otherwise, it is no more "selfish"
to fly one airworthy plane than another.
I don't need to pretend that I care as much as the people who cared enough to restore it. A group of people loved it, restored it over decades, flew
it and had it a museum so everyone could see it instead of hiding it away in a private hangar, spent their money and time to share it with you and the
rest of the world, lost a friend when it crashed as well as the airframe, but some of you have to pretend you cared more about it crashing than they
do. That's sort of offensive to me. I don't pretend to understand that sort of "selfish*.
If you want to see flying replicas, go fund a flying replica. Or build one. Support a project. Any project. Do. Something. When you care enough to
actually do something, then you get a voice.
If you have a one-off and don't wish to fly it, that's your choice. I get the reasoning. I'm not about to suggest you must
fly it. I don't see
the value in forcing you to fly it, even though I think it does more good in the air. I know faux outrage is everbloom these days, but really...
