The recovery was not going as planned and the conditions were not improving. After the initial lift, the team decided to calm the spirit of the lake by offering her a bottle of whisky! Less than three hours later they were presented with perfect diving conditions with the clouds gone, the sun out and the wind dropped to zero.

Rockets & yes, still dangerous along with the ammo for the 303's.(probably more so because of being underwater all those years).

Nice to see another Hurri. The Lonestar Flight Museum's hurricane is getting some final paper work & then it's off to the painter for a desert scheme.
