Mike, the Pegasus is still recoverable unless there is a lot of crushing damage to the buried fuselage. Even then it could be rebuilt. I watched a fascinating documentary recently about the recovery of the Lost Squadron of US planes that had to land and be abandoned in Iceland during early WWII. The planes had drifted with the glacier for the last 50+ years and were encased in ice at 250 feet. The recovery team devised a hot water jet system to actually go down an free one plane, bring it up in and enlarged hole through solid ice, rebuild it and actually fly it. This took a lot of time and money of course but if you can get to the Pegasus nose it sounds like a much easier project. Do you know who currently has rights to the Pegasus?
