I'm pretty sure that once certain components have reached the safe operation limits, there has to be some bit of jargon to describe this that escapes me now, those components have to be replaced. Basically, most of that aircraft is worth only scrap value. All components are rated to a number of hours. Then they're garbage. On a piece like the Blue Angel air show jet, i'm sure that EVERY piece has been stressed to within very small margins of recommended replacement. I'm not a professional, I just recall hearing a discussion at an air show about this very subject. But hey, one step closer to your own personal airforce.
