    Carlos Gomez bought his 1958 DC-7B about six years ago. Before he made the deal to buy it, he said, his wife told him if he bought one more airplane, "I'll divorce you." He did — and so did she.

    Gomez, 47, from Miami Springs, rescued and restored the former Eastern Airlines plane from what appeared to be certain doom at a St. Paul, Minn. airfield.
    "It sat outside for 32 years," Gomez said, never a good thing in a snowy state like Minnesota.
    The DCs were the last of the huge piston-engine planes before jets.

    Wow, that's funny and sad all at once. Nice resto job, though:

    Don't you have the impression the divorce would have happened anyway? I like the airplane
