We have excluded most high ground/crash wrecks unless substantially complete and we have also excluded underwater wrecks.
Regarding the ‘Status’ column, it is often a moot point as to what constitutes ‘airworthy’. Our subjective view is that if an aircraft has not flown for many months, then it is better described as ‘potentially airworthy’ or something similar. There are a number of Catalinas around the world that are in this position.
