If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it. At least that’s the motto of the military forces keeping these machines running.P
Yes, there are indeed some operational T-34 tanks in third world countries, but good luck finding them! There are also Spitfires, and three candidates from 1957: the Lockheed U-2, the Lockheed C-130 Hercules and the Boeing KC-135 Stratotanker. But those old units didn’t even make it into our top 10.
Grumpy old men in drag-down dust-up
from the N.Y. Post
Call ‘em the fighting fogies.
An angry 83-year-old brawler beat a 99-year-old man old with a metal steering-wheel lock in Brooklyn in a fight over parking, authorities said yesterday.
The geriatric dust-up happened at 2:10 p.m. Monday across the street from Maimonides Hospital in Borough Park, when Gersh Gofman, 83, of Sheepshead Bay, pulled his car in front of the driveway outside Steve Pulwers’ house.
Pulwers, who’s just two months shy of 100 and lives above a doctor’s office, said he was putting out the trash and knocked on Gofman’s window when the doctor returned for an emergency call and couldn’t get into the driveway.
