    Look up the story of the Kee Bird on youtube. You'll be saddened and angry at the same time.

    I thought about that aircraft when I posted this thread. That was a hell of a thing. Having another flying B-29 would have been incredible. That recovery operation was cursed from the start though. It was met with setback after setback and their lead mechanic died during the attempt.

    When the aircraft burned, it was on a frozen lake. The fuselage was completely destroyed, but the new engines, props and hubs were spared. The team went back later to recover them and salvage something from that fiasco, but the ice on the lake had already melted and the engines and stuff were at the bottom of that very deep lake. That video on You Tube is a damned good documentary on the event. Well worth watching.

    My God. What did he hit?

    And I'm guessing parts of whoever was driving are still in there.

    Things like that kinda dispel the notion that older cars aren't as safe as modern ones.

    Last I've heard they are blaming that wreck on the tires. Apparently they were the original tires on a ~9 year old, low mileage Porsche. Something to keep in mind.

    This photo of an Apollo Lunar Module and the Lunar Roving Vehicle makes me feel very sad and at the same time very, very, very proud.

    I think the Lunar Rovers must be the loneliest (and saddest?) vehicles ever invented - all by themselves with no one to drive them anymore.

    I can't tell if those are real cars or small toys.

    ETA: Definitely toys.
