That plane looks in rough shape for there to be much of anything salvageable. I suppose you can restore any plane even if all you have is the data plate.

If it looks rough now just wait a little bit. It was under sea water with very low oxygen. Now that its exposed to the other main culprit in order make it pixie dust...

If they really wanted to try and salvage wouldn't some sort of ship like the Glomar explorer be better? You pull into into the salt water hold and slowly replace the water with fresh water and infuse the fresh water without any ambient air getting to it it - before exposing it to air. That would only be $5+ million....

There's been some success making WWII planes air worthy after being pulled from fresh water lakes (Lake Michigan comes to mind).

One of "our planes" was pushed by unknowns into salt water and left overnight. It was torn down and "re-done" (I thought all too quickly). I declined to fly it after that re-build. Didn't matter really, it was totaled a few weeks later crashing onto a glacier in a white out...

A&P test study apps. Have seen someone show me one, but have not been able to find what looks like it. They said it was $5 per test (gen, airframe, powerplant).

Still cool.
Hmmmmm......obviously there is a definition of "remarkably undamaged" that I am not aware of.

shows extra effort. worth it. you should ask for a card or an address before you conclude your interview. F/U note- short sweet, to the point, why you should have the job.

If you are filling out engine log books, remember to put all the details of the disks and aircraft details of when the engine / power section was removed.
Thought my oppo was better than that.
Grrrrr

"Experts plan to spray the wings and fuselage with water and a combination of citric acid and sodium hydroxide in an attempt to halt corrosion."

Is there any such thing as an affordable, portable aviation GPS?
I'm looking for something to hang on an ultralight, that's easy to see in full sunlight, rugged, and may be water resistant, in the event of a shower.
Seems everywhere I look everyone's pushing the latest from Garmin, and they're not exactly cheap.
What all is out there, brand wise, or even within Garmin's own lineage, that won't kill the piggy bank?
I'm not afraid to buy used, or discontinued, but would like to find one that's relatively new enough to be easily upgraded software and mapwise, when needed.

Thought you might enjoy reading about "Bazooka Charlie" who mounted six recoilless rifles (bazookas) on his L4. He destroyed at least six German tanks.

It's only cheap compared to an aviation gps, but an ipad or ipad-mini in a lifeproof case and running ForeFlight would work. At least it's multi-use. Some folks say they can't see the screen in full sunlight, but I have no issues in my clear-canopied RV. I do have to adjust the angle depending on lighting conditions.
