    I sympathize but what were they supposed to do with all those planes. With the way the world was changing, they were essentially junk with no more useful purpose. Some were saved for museums but you can't save them all. Yes, it's sad but it's a fact.

    Back then what were we to do with 45,000 surplus/ obsolete aircraft ????? We sank an entire fleet, completely loaded with aircraft, fuel and munitions, at Bikini Atoll.
