Yes, Al!

Max ? flew one of the first Velocitys accross the pond via the Azores with
alcohol in the tanks. That particular airplane flew for many years with
alcohol until - I dont know the circumstances - the tanks were opened and
inspected. The epoxy, I heard, was just slightly softened at the very
surface. I think Allan Shaw knows more; Allan??
