Well, yes. Any idea on what the aircraft designation was, and why it was plagued by poor glues?

Originaly they used a good wood glue used in the film industry but after the factory was bombed out of existance they used cianokrilate glue (superglue) which as they found out has a nasty tendency to eat up the wood and glued joints fall apart.

BTW official designation was Focke wulf Ta-154 Mosquito

Yes - and the detail I like best is that the glue factory was bombed by mistake!

JCalhoun got it originally.

Here's an easy one.

How are the P-51 Mustang, B-17 Flying Fortress and NASA's Space Shuttle related?

All wrong.

It has absolutely nothing to do with structure, performance, controls, or any other physical or design attributes.

Doesn't matter. It's not the right answer. :)

You can use Google or any other research you feel like.
