When I saw the heading I thought it might be from the Canadian who removed and restored one of the remote turrets from the B-36 crash on the west coast island.

He sounded like he was trying or at least thinking about selling it.

Because it is so rare, I don't know of one on display, I urged him to see if a Museum wanted to buy it rather than just selling it to the highest bidder to maximize profit.

One of the joys of the internet is the stories that pop up when you are trying to find information on something.

Bet that 'starter' turret didn't cost $25000!
