        The opposite side skin & a valve cover from PA908 was also there, but a previous manager stripped the place & sold a lot of stuff off. None of it was his. I lost an R2800 cylinder & cam ring. Just glad the main wheel wasn't loaned to the place, I still have that

          That, sadly, is the down side and extreme risk you take lending ANYTHING to a museum ... I have a not altogether pleasant history with a nautical museum here in the US. The only real ways you have to protect in your stuff are, 1) Visit it every day, 2) Have a legal agreement that includes steep monetary penalties if they damage or lose your stuff, or 3) Never lend it in the first place.

            They also had damn near enough gauges to fit out a B36 cockpit. 2 or 3 were mine
