Strange ways to use combat aircraft.
During the Second world war in the world produced a huge amount of weapons. After the war many military vehicles are outdated and were written off. But people have found many interesting peaceful applications for those returning from the battlefields of combat aircraft.
Car of the downed P-38 Lightning.
In the photo – the Lockheed P-38 Lightning US air force (serial number – 44-25734) and a member of the ground personnel of the 94th fighter squadron 1st fighter group, who built a homemade car out of the parts of the downed P-38 Lightning. P-38 was one of the main airplanes that were used by the United States in world war II. During the air battles at Munich one P-38 was shot down by anti-aircraft gun. The technician from the 94th fighter squadron did from the remnants of the crashed plane car. He reworked the fuel tank and added to it the wheels. A plexiglass windshield was taken from the cockpit, “Lockheed”.
2. Racing yacht
Sailboats of external fuel tanks.
During the stay in Palau, the crew of the bomber regiment 7 of the U.S. air force altered the external fuel tanks of the aircraft in racing sailing boats. Such could also be seen in Vietnam. When the 7th regiment of the air force was during the war in Palau, pilots for entertainment has created sailboats from external fuel tanks of the aircraft and raced these “boats” along the coast.
House of boxes.
The crew of the bomber in Italy built a house from wooden crates spare parts for aircraft.
3. Convenient chicken coop
“Farmer” beat “the Pilot”.
Those who ever traveled through the rural areas of North America likely saw the bombers that were used during the Second world war, but this is hardly suspect. After all, these bombers were converted into chicken coops (in America after the war, there were many farms across the country).
The German tank turned into a bookcase.
After the war ended, the government began to sell farmers the Lancaster bombers charged at a ridiculous price of $500. Of military equipment were sheds for domestic animals.

However, some time has passed and people began to try to make former bombers not only combining, but the aircraft for agriculture. And it was very dangerous.

In the end, the government had on TV to explain about the danger of such aircraft due to the damage that could be caused during the war. In addition, the wings of the decommissioned aircraft began to saw into two parts, making them completely useless.
Only parts, parts, assemblies…
Sergeant ray Petit from the 15th brigade air force in Italy built a chair from a wooden box for the ventral tank. His chair was equipped with a reading lamp, an ashtray, a magazine rack and a radio with off timer for the night.

4. Tank from the aircraft P-51, which could travel at a speed of 210 km/h
The same tank…
One of the technicians of the air force in Italy once attached to the tank from the plane P-38 engine, wheels, and shield of Plexiglas. In the end, he famously traveled by such an unusual homemade car. After the pilots returned home to the United States after the war, they began to buy these pots for only $ 35.
In 1946 in a converted auto 165-litre ventral tank for istrebitelya P-51, which was equipped with a V-8 engine Mercury was able to accelerate to 210 km/h.
