I'd like to have seen that happen.

Maybe not POV, tho.

And, apparently, the left overs on the nose of the plane are referred to as "snarge".

Snarge
Never heard of it, but a combo of snot and garbage.
Studied, by DNA and other means, for aircraft safety programs.

Good word!

I've never heard of 'snarge' but I recall that there was a chap at the Ministry of Defence responsible for keeping foreign object damage to aircraft to an absolute minimum.

He was known as the 'MoD FOD Bod'.

Models flew in a wind tunnel but can't find validation of the big one flying.

It isn't an aircraft, it isn't there and you haven't seen it. Right?

Well, that's that cleared up.

22 visible gears, on a quick count.

Who knows what lies beneath.

Looks more like a Rolex than a 14 cylinder, 2000 cubic inch radial engine (28 gears).
It was a pretty good one at that, used in Caribous and DC 3's and 4's.

I've jumped the DC3 once, during the final phase of SF training. Pilot was CIA getting his flight time in. We sat on the floor, side by side with backs to the fuselage, on that steep tail to nose incline. Everyone leaned towards the nose and held onto the next guys gear as the pilot gunned those engines for a short runway takeoff. Otherwise there would have been a pile-up at the tail end. It was interesting!
