Comments: I was one of the last to leave atlantic city. To go to Quansit point. It was a sad
day for most of us. To look out on the flight line and only see the oil on the
tarmack where the aircraft had been sitting only a few moments earlier. I spent a
year at Quansit point then being sent pax river for the rest of my time. I have
located one of the ad 5 n. there are only 4 known to exist. The one that I found
belongs to the. Collings foundation located in Stou mass. Th airplane is on
display Ina hangar at Quansit point. I had a lot things and have donated to
them. They tell me most is on display with the plane. I would like to hear from
any one from the squadron
