      Dude, Seriously.....Nobody picked a "fight" with you.

      You are like that guy that stands in a person line of sight, or the one that walks in front of a to be taken picture. We are just waiting for you to move along so we can continue discussin this great thread.

      (and since I know you gonna reply to this like "You can't make me leave, I will stay here and defend myself)

      If you choose to stay, stop picking fights with people or trolling the thread. You already warned that the thread is in the wrong place(we know that already) and you already reported it to the moderators.

      There is nothing else to be done, unless YOU want to continue picking fights. Which is pretty low even for internet standards.

      I don't expect to get along with anyone. i have a plenty tough skin. You see everything as an attack, when it is not.

      And I was referring to when you said I "fight the definition of douche". It was a subtle jab at your responses to others in this thread,m where you pick apart their misspellings

      I'm done commenting with you. If you don't see it by now, hopefully you will in the future. Saying **** just to start **** NEVER goes well. Just move on. You can already see people who have posted in here thatb this is why they stop coming to these forums, because of attitudes like that. And that ruins the forum for everyone. One day you'll realize

      Since we are on the topic of WWII planes, B-25 taken out of a SC lake after 66 years. Amazing how clean it is.

      Please do not feed the troll. Trolls have special diets, properly balanced for nutritional needs. For their health and your safety, do not feed them anything.

      That is by FAR the coolest thing I've ever seen. I can't even fathom. There were NO better examples to start with? lol.
      Haha apparently not! Website says there's only like 4 surviving airframes in the world, rest are scrapped. I mean, the scope of this thing is ridiculous. Look at these pictures:

      Oh look guys! The guy who is yapping his mouth about the thread that doesn't belong in this forum is actually responding about the story as if he really cared about it. You sir are an incessant troll and the biggest hypocrite I've ever seen in this forum. STFU and go address your cognitive disability. K? Have nice day you colossal retard.

      Damn. With the warm weather you'd expect rust to have taken that thing years ago.

      It sure is. I am not a military history buff or enthusiast by any means but the historical content is awesome. Too bad none of the museum pieces were kept in flying condition. I wish they did that more often.

      And they keep coming for more.
      Unlike you, who have contributed nothing to this thread, I have not only engaged in discussion about the plane but have also posted a plane and article for the rest of the users to see. Go away, troll.

      I too have wondered this. Why couldn't the government save at least one or two examples of every plane to preserve them. It's like they needed every single one of them to fight the war. I'm sure today they make sure to save a couple to place in museums.

      Awesome! There's another good story about "Glacier Girl," a P-38 that crashed in Greenland, and was pulled out of the ice, and is now in flying condition. I think it's the only airworthy example in the world. It was going to make it to WWII Weekend a couple years ago, but poor weather scrapped the flight.

      It sure is. I am not a military history buff or enthusiast by any means but the historical content is awesome. Too bad none of the museum pieces were kept in flying condition. I wish they did that more often.
      Yea, it is a shame. There's nothing like being on the ground when these things fly by. Certainly gives me chills!

      Thanks for proving to everyone that you're a hypocrite. How the heck are you going to "engage in discussion about the plane" and also post pics and articles, and then turn around and tell everyone to stop posting in this thread because it doesn't belong here and then disrespect a fellow forum member who tried to share a fantastic story of how his grandfather served this great country. You either have a double personality or are possessed with an entire legion of demons. The power of Christ compels you troll!

      The Smithsonian has a pretty good selection, and combined with the other private museums around the world, they probably have an example of most everything. It would be awesome if you could see all of them in one place though.
