Fantasy of Light down in Florida still hopes someday to get Fertile Myrtle back in the air. She is a super rare P2B-1 so if they do then 1/4 of the USN Superfortresses would be in the air. I hope they pull it off, but have my doubts. She was grounded in the 1970s, with main spar corrosion.
Thank you, Captain Ned. I had not considered that they would have a righting arm long enough to give them a snap return. But upon pondering, with that kind of beam, I can see where they could. They better keep the Denny Brown stabilizers in shape! Car carriers are the same shape as cruise liners, albeit smaller, and they have occasional stability problems:

When I look at a cruise liner, and think about the above/below waterline ratio of the hull. and on board weight, the metacentric height of a cruise liner must be measured in centimeters, and with the sail area of the hull, the only things keeping it upright in anything but a dead calm must be the stabilizers. I believe that someday, one of those things is gonna roll on them.

I would think a Bradley and it's crew could do a fair amount of Counter-Reconnaissance.
My word, that cat looks like Tyrone, the cat I had from 1978-88. He was a most splendid cat. Because of him I have a fondness for orange tomcats.

Hatred is a ground belief for the Left. It affects everything they view, do or think. He has already been pardoned in their eyes.
An interesting time. I was 5 at the time.

She must have been a Good Mom, as she produced a Good Son!
A Good Man.
The Left knows that they are the only source of truth. Which is why fools like Olbermann draw a paycheck.
So, you were in The Big Badger Boat? The only IOWA that was fully fitted for KATIE projectiles?
I have always been impressed by Operation Starvation. An excellent post, sir!

I got a SIG P250C/45 as a birthday present a couple of years ago. Of course, I named it Precious. The winner is the striker version of the P-250, the P320. They should like it.
In BRAVE MEN, Ernie Pyle writes about an Invader squadron. The pilots seemed to like them.

Were you driving NEW HAMPSHIRE?
When my then 10 year old nephew discovered WACO gliders, I had to track down the Italeari kit for him.

We are so lucky Barack Obama has led us into the light.
Well said, Sir! So many adults have no memories of an evil cabal running the largest country on Earth. It does not help that the teachers of our children won't tell the students about it. I suspect that Quartermaster is right, and that Russia is in deeper economic problems that they admit. In other news, MERRY CHRISTMAS to all of Brad's denizens!
Rusty, Ned, send in the Big Badger Boat time?
Where is she going to keep a B-29?

In the ETO, P-47s used to down Feisler Storches, by diving down, roaring past them, and allowing the turbulence to deal with the Storch.
