"Doing more exercise with less intensity,"
Arthur Jones believes, "has all but
destroyed the actual great value
of weight training. Something
must be done . . . and quickly."
The New Bodybuilding for
Old-School Results supplies
MUCH of that "something."

For those of you that like hearing stories about Jones, this is a little off topic but still was interesting to me. Mainly people that were familiar with what he did prior to Nautilus or people who read his bio/autobio may find this interesting.


One of Arthur Jones's B-25 Bombers is restored and back in the air

One of the planes he used named "Wild Cargo" to bring exotic animals back to the U.S. and transport them around the U.S. has been saved from a private airplane "boneyard" and rebuilt and is flying - it is still named WILD CARGO!

He used to do a show on TV before Wild Kingdom called Wild Cargo


The story I found more interesting than the plane being rebuilt was what happened to it and where it wound up.

Jones wasn't flying it at the time, but some other pilot that worked for him was flying out of Slidel with a load of alligators and snakes and had to crash land at Lunken airport in 1963. It was reported that the pilot made a perfect textbook crash landing and all the animals were OK - Would Jones have had any OTHER type of pilot work for him? :-)

The plane was sold for SCRAP, but a small time 'junk' plane collector went to the field and disassembled the plane with his teenage kids (15 and under) over a period of a year and hauled it back in pieces to his Ohio private warbid graveyard in a worn out 1957 Suburban and POS trailer.


Anyway it survived the elements and got rebuilt in 05 and is flying. You can google up the keywords "wild cargo B-25" and "Walter Soplata" and try to read through the dead links.

Pretty interesting for those of you that like Jones related stuff - I hadn't seen this one on here so I decided to post it.

If there is enough interest I can add more

The old guy that owned all this stuff just died....

Here are pics of his place including the Jones B-25:

Here is an article on the restored bird:

Here is an account of how they got the Jones plane and of the teenage kids ripping it apart and transporting it 200 miles one piece at a time with a 1957 6 cylinder POS Suburban and homemade trailer (and practically no decent tools, unbelievable - literally)

Read that above link if you want to know the specifics - incredible story






There are youtube videos and more stuff.....


Funny thing is they didn't know it was Arthur Jones (later the Nautilus guy)s plane - they just knew it was some guy that transported animals.....


Pretty wild

Glad some of you guys found this interesting and it didn't just die off...

I suggest anyone interested in this sort of stuff to dig up more info on Soplata and on the finished airplane - the restored airplane is an EXCELLENT example and is almost mint for a flying WWII bomber 70 years later

I found it really fascinating since I knew the history of the plane from reading about early Jones, Nautilus and have been around old Warbirds and old military pilots my whole life - my dad was a WWII bomber pilot and went in before Pearl Harbor and didn't get fully out until 1969. We always went to Air Force Bases and actually even walked a good part of the Tucson Boneyard back in the day - times were very different then


I wanted to add a bit to this post since it has hit major search engines and anyone looking for info on this plane will likely find it - in case the family that used to own the plane never figured out it was Arthur Jones of Nautilus fame who's plane they owned who later built Jumbolair in Florida for his private aircraft fleet which is now a residential aviation community that now John Travolta flies out of with his 707 from time to time.

I have not read one reference to Jones in any of the online info on this plane or by the Soplata family so I figured I would add it.

It is a shame that Mr. Soplata never got a chance to restore any of those planes himself, but he sure did a heck of a job from keeping them from the shredder. Way cool. It is reported that something around 60 planes, or at least pieces of 60 planes made their way to his house - and evidently he financially scraped to do it. And the effort of moving these things was enormously labor intensive and logistically taxing.

There is a B-36 Peacemaker in pieces there - do you guys realize the size of a B-36 even in pieces? Enormous

Enjoy the info - add any more you find

What would be really cool would be to visit one of the plane bone yards! I'd want to bring a couple of those planes home, ha ha.. I saw a bone yard in Arizona or somewhere on TV that had a bunch of A-10's. Man, that would be cool to look at.

I walked the Tuscon bone yard at Davis Monthan with my dad in the late 60s.

All sorts of awesome planes were in there - some cut up, some just 'mothballed' to source parts off of or bring back to life

Quite a bunch of WWII, Korea and Vietnam era planes present when I was there - all far different and changed by now - lots of B-52s for Russian satellite viewing ;-(

It is interesting that old planes can lay around in boneyards for decades and be restored or salvaged for parts.

Funny how what was once junk can become valuable again.

Just like old Nautilus, ha ha..I guess it's lucky alot of planes were made of aluminum instead of steel like old cars. I was recently at an old junk yard in West Va. looking at some cool old cars sitting there that I would kill for if they were salvageable but they were rusted beyond hope.

Not sure if you watch some of the cable shows such as Pawn Stars or American Pickers. Some of the stuff and what it goes for is absolutely fascinating. Definitely recommended to check out.

I've seen them, they are pretty good.

Actually aluminum oxidizes and rots very easily - especially when it is paper thin like the skins of airplanes - especially around rivets and cap screws

It gets white, and gets very brittle. Even wing spars and ribs can be damaged. That is why most modern manufacturing processes using bonding agents and epoxy the skins on and pieces together

Any of those planes would need to be heavily disassembled, inspected and new parts made to make them flyable - that is why most get restored to static display condition.

Even if those planes never sat exposed and were in climate controlled storage they would likely be so far past their service life just hour wise that they would need rebuilds - you hear of more and more WWII era planes being lost to failures - pretty soon I bet most guys won't even risk flying them - we are talking 70 - 75 year old pieces
