Planes, mud and balloons???
While conversing with a member of another website he mentioned that in ENG when a plane ended up off the runway they often became stuck in the mud. Especially, if it was a wheels up landing. He said that balloons were sometimes used to raise the ship so that it could be moved and repaired. Has anyone heard of this and can you explain how it was done?
BTW, I don't believe he was making this up. Everything he has told me in the past has been on the money.
