Sad

Granted they are only objects and not people, but how gutted would you feel if involved with this museum??

Hadn't seen this, very sad! Sad

That PBY should have floated ok. I see a belly tank that we can turn into a Salt Flats racer.

You're right,Rick.It is very sad indeed,but they ARE only objects,and they can be fixed,whereas people often can't.The trauma suffered by people who have to live through this must be unbearable,and my heart goes out to them.
I thank my lucky stars that all we get in NZ is the odd earthquake,and some flooding in places. Here in the south island,they are mostly very minor.
