Thing that will make men cry


Recommended Posts

Yup that's pretty sad...but I guess that has been the fate of old military gear for a long time....think of all the great old warships going to the breakers yard.....all the P51s and Spitfires, and Sherman tanks that met the same fate

It's sad, the only thing worse is to watch the guillotine chop fuselages into tiny pieces. :(

Next time you go into a store that sells cookware, check out the aluminum pots and pans, they may have been made from a B-52 Stratofortress or C-141 Starlifter, same goes for aluminum cans.

I've seen several photos from WWII that show the destruction of warplanes at the end of the war. One was the navy pushing F4U's over the side on an Essex class carrier and another was the army bulldozing several P-38s at an airfield in the Pacific.
