Yes we in the military joked about this FACT for years. Congress would always approve the additional monies needed for "operations" so the AF would always build the other stuff first knowing that when they needed the money to finish, they would always get it. The Army has gotten wise to this though in the last few years. Still a joke that Loring was closed primarily due to the fact they said the B52 was going to be decomissioned and here we are over a decade later and that bird is still flying... retrofitted but still airborne. After 20+ years of military service I still believe "military intelligence" is an oxymoron LOL but god bless the troops and everyone that has or is serving.

That was bought years ago by some guys who had an idea they were going to market and sell the parts for top dollar around the Country. Back in the late 90's early 2000's they were crushing all the cars for the scrap price... I almost cried. There were some beautiful old cars there that were turned into flattened twisted metal.
