"they would make" ... past tense ?
Is the following extra valid past tense? The 'make' is present tense, but does the construction ('would') make it past tense????
David noticed that some of the film crews had the sort of beefy security guards normally found at rock concerts, maybe they would make it back with some of the expensive camera equipment they had started with.
If I re-cast the sentance as "maybe they made it back" This does not have the same meaning
