    Chris can you beleave this...\





    This unnatural act of flying the Crusader with folded wings was photographed by Marine GySgt George Lord of VMF(AW)235.

    It all ended after about a point 5 hour of flight time when the plane was landed safely into the arresting gear with the wings still folded and standing at attention. Hundreds of hours of structural repair was required by Juan Lara, Jon Kirkwood and others in the Death Angel Metal Shop before DB 5 was once again flyable

    Marco i don't think that its the same aircraft because according the decal sheet the number on the tail is 0317 whilst on the photo the number is 7068. Even the number 4 is more slanting in the decal sheet. Could it be that its not the same aircraft?
