true stuff. Back in the 1970's the army went around and collected ALL of the radium painted dials in any aircraft in US museums. When you see an old aircraft now on display, often there is a big hole in the middle of the display panel!

I read somewhere that someone's made a play out of the story.


They did, but it was a short run because all the actors got cancer and died.
