GullyDad has been working long and hard on researching and writing about an aviation feat that was vitally important, but is now largely forgotten. The "Truculent" Turtle, a purpose-built P2V Neptune, set a distance and endurance record, flying non-stop from Australia to Ohio in 1946. The link above is the result of his work. Check it out, and consider a donation to help preserve this piece of aviation history.
