"One image shows an aircraft tug with its black rubber tires still gripping the carrier’s deck where it would have moved aircraft into position. A sign with the tug's maker, "International Harvester," is clearly visible atop its engine."

I liked the interview they had with one of the surviving gunners. He said there was $40 in his locker and they could have it, if they found it.
