Indeed a sad episode. But then, what else could they've done? There was a severe shortage of raw materials for the civvie market and the demand was huge, plus the jet era had already started making the piston prop technology kind of obsolete, plus those birds were not "vintage" back then, plus everyone and their rear admiral's dog were decommissioning anyway because the war was, thankfully, finally over. What would _you_ have done in their place?

And you've got to understand those birds were not "cool" or "awesome" right after the war. They were a reminder of a tragedy everyone wanted to forget as fast as possible. So again, what could've _anyone_ done really?

Mustangs were going for $1500.00 USD at that time.

I'm about to buy another plane. I sure wish it was the Jug. That would be an easy decision.

Just hold off until it hits the Early Access point where you can get it with a discount. That is what I am going to do for the Mossie

I don't mind paying full price because I know i'll love it and fly it a lot. I just wish we had some clue when it will be.
