B-52 engine recovery

The two B-52 engines where officially mine for a couple of days this week. Brun-Way called me up last month to see if I wanted to have them. They obviously received a picture of me with the engines taken in April and they decided to offer them to me first. I accepted and we got them out of their 50 year old resting place yesterday. I have decided to bring them to a recycling company for credit and proper disposal. A lot of aluminum and magnesium in those babies!! I did keep a piece for myself. It is a small sheet of aluminum identifying the manufactuers Pratt and Whitney and the Ford motor company. Pic below show the two engines and the debris pile recovered from the site.
