The X-45 was scrapped at Orrville. Only the boiler remains.

Word has it that the X-14 was also scrapped in New Castle last year. I think I was the last person to operate this one.

All three cranes that I'e had a hand in have been scrapped. I wish I had more resources...

Thanks Rick, that is sad news but not unexpected. At least now I know what happened to them.
