    So do you think that D-8 was fixed or used as parts and scraped out?

    Yeah it had to mess some other stuff up with regards to structural integrity I would think? I wonder if they would do stress/crack test to visually view areas of concern with dye on sound? I'm sure that machine would have been written off, but a lot of money wasted on such an expensive machine.
