Great story... That must have been a sight to see for Robert S... his old plane laying there in pieces still there after all these years.

From the Smith story:

" If the engine got damaged, shut it off, and save the fluids, then they could try and restart it when the got back"

I wish this worked in AEP. It seems that a leaky, damaged engine will continue to degrade in flight, whether it is running or not. At least that has been my experience so far. It's also possible that I haven't had the correct type of damage to model this.

edit: I'm so sorry, thank you for the links. I really enjoy this bird. http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

The P-38 has automatic fuel mix control.
