I wonder if they let him keep it to make a fire ring? It's in pretty good shape for falling off the airplane onto a truck. ;)


Then again, maybe they will give him enough money to paint that place!

A little plastic lining, hey a nice backyard swimming pool for the kids.

Otherwise, hold it for ransom.

I wonder, as a theoretical matter, what authority do the authorities have to seize it if a body wanted to keep it.

A pair of A-10's fly right oveer the house about once a month. I keep wondering if I could keep the 20 mic mic if they hit one of my trees. With my luck I will get unintened cargo from the stealh bombers that fly over everyday.

ULA there in Centennial took a surplus payload adapter ring rated for 10,000kg @300G's and have it holding up a glass lunch table in their cafeteria.

Some ballistic uranium would be nice for my collection.

Didn't notice the mistype on the gun but I was just thinking about pointing the barrels down the driveway. I'm sure the sales people would enjoy it. While they back up very quickly.

Nope.

But I have other forms of uranium, just no DU ballistic alloy.

Isn't depleted uranium just a pile of dense, very unradioactive, U238?

Less radioactive.  But yeah.

P.S.: This thread is responsible for me losing five hours to videos of home made turbojet engines.  Worth it.

I built one as a kid.  Lots of fun, that.

If you're done with home built turbojet videos, time to move on to valveless pulsejet videos!

The GAU-8 fires a 30mm round, not 20.

This is a GAU-8 round next to a .30-06...

Boeing and NTSB grounded the 777.


Many of the 128 jets Boeing recommended to be sidelined while the FAA completes its inspection plan are already in storage. Airlines have mothballed some of the wide-body aircraft they use for long flights because of the coronavirus pandemic, which has weakened demand for travel. Boeing said 69 of the 777 aircraft with certain Pratt & Whitney 4000-series engines are in service.

A preliminary examination by the National Transportation Safety Board showed that two fan blades in one of the United aircraftís engines were fracturedóóone nearly entirely and the other about half-broken, the agency said Sunday. The remaining fan blades showed signs of damage, while the airplane also sustained minor damage, the safety board said.

BTW, we may have used some Depleted Uranium during the first Gulf war but had to download and go straight HEI after the tank threat was taken care of. Didnít use any during Iraq freedom. 

I have a couple of empty cases and a few mock ups on plaques I received over the years. All from blue tip practice rounds of course....lol

You want nothing to do with the 30mm depleted uranium rnds those shoot,  unless you have a burning desire to glow in the dark.

The Depleted uranium is well encased in the shell, and the uranium is just a weak alpha and beta emitter. Things like paper, cloth etc. will block it. Not to mention whatever cladding is on the shell itself around the DU.

If the rounds are destroyed damaged in a crash, I suppose there could be DU particles spread around. And heavy metal toxicity will get you before the radiation does.

IIRC, some airliners carry a DU weight for trim and balance in the tail so more chances to find it in your yard.  =D
I promise not to duck.

British and US forces used, from what I've been able to find, munitions containing over 600,000 pounds of depleted uranium during the first Gulf War.

The Iraq military had a lot of tanks, APC and associated armor in the beginning so we put plenty of Uranium back into the desert sand  there....;)
