Thanks Andy44, quite a fan of it myself! I hope I do find enough time to finish that mesh in a reasonable period.
Durable beast, too. Quite a little "adventure" on this video of it.
And a pleasing exchange in the comments, for Youtube, that seems to be legitimate between two offspring of the crew members, and adds some interest.
I just now finally watched it. I'm surpised they didn't bail out, landing a delta wing with a bad main gear is pretty dicey, not to mention the fatigue after flying refueling missions all night for 14 hours.
S.C.George said:But at the end of World War II events occurred which completely altered the scrap value of steel in the remaining wrecks. These were the atomic explosions in Japan which resulted in contamination of the atmosphere by fall-out. This has meant that all steels made after 1945 are to a very slight extent radioactive...
...it therefore follows that for the most sensitive shielding experiments, pre-1945 steel is essential, and the scarcity value of such steel of a thickness of two and a half inches or more became double the value of steel manufactured after 1945.
