    Very well preserved, hope they can raise it in the future, but i do wish these national papers would stop using the term "Nazi" just to sensationalise and sell papers, then in the same breath use its correct definition ie "Luftwaffe aircraft", everything they print re Germany in the war years is branded Nazi, it really does get my goat
