- Description'She was loved and trusted by every man who ever knew her. To the eyes of the young men who looked upon her with warmth and affection she had beauty unsurpassed. To her friends she was gentle, staunch, loyal and a protectress; to her enemies she was a lightning bolt from the skies, a ruthless and total destroyer. She was unique in the heavens for there was thing she could t do there when called upon by those who loved and needed her. An inanimate piece of machinery, a mass of tubes, wire, steel, aluminium; she flew like an angel. She had vices.
