GUEST: My father-in-law was an Air Force pilot in World War II. He was driving by a scrapyard, and he stopped the Jeep and said, "That's my plane."
APPRAISER: Most of these were scrapped. And to have the entire section from a B17, like, the most loved plane from the Second World War, is pretty rare. And you even have a photo with your father-in-law and the nose art intact. A section like this, retail, would easily be $10,000.
GUEST: Oh, my gosh.
