What could possibly go wrong? Seriously, misfit do you ever go to Oshkosh? Nothing
but prop and jet noise 6 am to 8 pm for 7 days. Heaven Nirvanna, Valhalla, all rolled into one,,,,,,,,,

Straddling the drive shaft didn't seem to bother Chuck Yeager when he flew the earlier P-39. You'd think there would be some kind of tight fit. Almost as bad as squatting atop the P-38 nose wheel, especially if you forgot to tap the brake while retracting.
