Yeah most of us flying FC had a feeling it was abandoned. I think we did not put covid 19 in to the actuation.

Aye, you are correct in that.

 

Well, I might as well contribute something else to this thread other than being smug,

 

Here's a triplane I drew in high school. I played RoF and IL-2 instead of focusing on school, so planes were pretty much all I drew in art class:
