Wow, that might take a D12-3. Not even sure the mighty C6-5 could get it to a safe altitude.

Bill,

Why don't you rescue this one, I'm a little full right now . . . .

According to my source, it is from an early version of the Ground Based Defense Interceptors. Current ones are on alert in Alaska and California, to save us from North Korean ICBMs.

Good "detective work" . . . Isn't it a little "early" for items like those to be in a scrap yard ?
