Provenance Matters

Normally, nobody in their right mind would give up a P-47 in an even-steven trade for a PT-17, given that a Stearman is worth about one-fifteenth as much as a Thunderbolt.

But if the Stearman has history with the Tuskeegee Airmen, then yeah, it may be worth a P-47.

Yup I'd have to agree. Given how many Stearmans were produced and the fact it will mean another P-47 eventually getting airborne, it was a good trade.
