I guess I shouldn't be surprised but I never realized how close in size the Mossie and P-38 are.

Yes, good point.

I've had the pleasure of seeing (and hearing!) a Mossie in flight, but not, unfortunately, a P-38.

It was funnier when the sign said "Wonder Woman's Jet".

That's because only Old Farts like us would get it. But, you're right. That would be funnier. My Brother came to visit recently. When he talked into his Apple Watch, I asked him, "Didn't Dick Tracy have one of those"? I thought he was going to hit me.
