God, this sickens me to even think about it...
Reminds me of someone who had a portion of the nose from a combat-flown B-17 bomber, complete with its nose art and flak damage, that came back to the state for scrapping and was partially saved by someone who liked the nose art, being scrapped ten years ago by the owner's idiot kids who didn't know what it was and were in a hurry to destroy everything their dad collected after he passed away...
