I just about want to go nuts when I watch shows on the Military Channel like just last night they had a show on the B-17 ball turret gunner and showed the surplus yards after the war of all these grand war birds that you know they scrapped along time ago it just breaks my heart. Then you see the documentaries about after the war they would dump the surplus overboard that kicks my butt also.

My dad was stationed at Wheelus AFB in Tripoli when we pulled out....he said they dug big pits and burned anything not immediately flyable including B-29s, C 47s, vehicles, small arms....pushed them into the pits, poured diesel on them, burned them and buried the remains.

I'm using Imgur; went there after the photobucket betrayal. Opened an Imgur account and never looked back. Actually find it easier to use than p-bucket.
