It was refreshing to read that at last the credit was given to Bonn Svensson (Record, Dec, 7) for his aeronautical expertise in restoring the Y2K Spitfire from just a lump of scrap metal.
Pity it could not have been given to him when he was alive.
I know when the Spitfire is airworthy and on its first flight, if there is any way at all, Bonn will be in the co-pilot seat.
On a personal note, I never heard Bonn brag on his achievement of restoring the Spitfire to its present state.
I think it would be appropriate if the Comox Air Force Museum at the base cut through the bureaucracy and pomp to give credit where credit is due and give some sort of recognition for his work on the Y2K Spitfire.
Thank you, Comox Valley Record, for running this story. Rest in peace, Bonn.
