Engine hours how many over 10k hours?

I'm curious if anyone or many people have managed to get their engines passed the 10k hours mark?

Many times with non-turbo Detroit 71's. And seen WWII 671's that ran into the 80's commercial fishing without overhaul. Clean oil and lower rpms will do it every time.
