B-52 engine recovery

August 13, 2005

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.
