Red Grandy ©Stars and StripesMannheim, Germany, July, 1982: A German "Floating Achilles" crane lifts a 50-ton M-60 tank out of the Neckar River. The tank had been stolen by a U.S. soldier and driven on a rampage through Mannheim, demolishing a streetcar and several cars and injuring three people. It was then trapped on the bridge, but in backing off the driver went over the edge and was killed.
