Ice cream

A soldier named Major Hunter Reinburg posted on Peleliu in 1944 craved ice-cream so much that he together with aircraft engineers put a can filled with milk onto the underside of each wing tip of their planes, attaching a stirring shaft to a wind-driven propeller and then taking off. They made 100 portions of ice every day.
