    Quite interesting, Sys. It would probably cost a fortune to retrieve any
    of these or someone would have done it.

    Why would anybody want to recreate a four engine failure on a B-24? Maybe I'm not aviation minded enough but that seems alittle crazy.

    The more I read my post, the more I realize what a dumb question. When I first read the account it just stood out for me. Oh well!
