    Nice one Maria! The USAAF in Britain during WW2 did a similar thing to make ice cream. They filled drop tanks with the mixture, flew up to 20,000 feet or so, then came back with drop tanks full of ice cream !

    How did they get the stuff out of the tanks afterwards? *curious*
    Cool anyway, thanks for sharing, Air. :thumbleft:
    Geoffrey Wellum writes about, how their ammo were replaced during a flight to...I think it was Malta...cartons of cigarettes were inserted, where the belts of ammo for the machine guns were supposed to be. Not something the pilots felt very comfortable about. I don't blame them, what with all the jerries in the air all over the Mediterranean. ;)
