NO - the B25 was cut up and removed the night it went into the water. What we thought were searchers were actually scavengers and junk dealers. The "sight" and the cargo was returned to the government the rest scrapped.

"Scavengers an junk dealors" returned the bomb sight and cargo to the government? Had you ever served in the US military, you would know this is not how the US Army Air Corps conducted recovery operations in such situations, and particulary in those where lives were lost.

Perhaps you simply are a "troll," as your shadow asserts.

Both salvage companies involved were working for the government under contract and sworn to secrecy. THE CARGO, AND THE "SIGHT" WERE LOADED ON A BARGE..TAKEN TO A TRAILER TRUCK. Loaded on the Northside near Zubic's. It was taken to the County Airport, loaded on a "Gooney Bird" and shipped off. When it finally got light the next day, it was pretty much all over.

PS - My "shadow" has lost his Progressive arguments and has reverted to the Democratic concept of name calling and personal destruction as opposed to rational debate.

But then, "What does it matter anyhow".

If you had even a one cell brain you would have done a bit of research as to what was going on on Pittsburgh Rivers in the 40's and 50's. I said scavengers, I meant scavengers!

The main scrap products were pig iron billets that were lost on river bottoms in the 1800's.

What a dolt, Obot for sure.

Ya' know , your Democrats were in charge then as well. Not one hell a lot has changed has it. Couldn't even find a big airplane in a small river. Sort of like today, can't find their a&& unless they use both hands and ask if it's OK.
