By Bogi252 · PostedAs each MLG Ballscrew is approved by part number, ensure that the alternative you are installing are listed in the AC IPC. Once this is confirmed, I agree with Mr. Myers, there is no other requirement to match part numbers.
By Bogi252 · PostedDear Mr. Munir, First concern is oil splashing on the generator! from what source? This is not normal and must be fixed before running engine or installing replacement generator. Potential fire hazzard. We represent the manufacturer of the generator you mention. We can perform a teardown and report exact cause of failures. Also we can offer alternative gen in NEW condition with 3 yr warranty, as a more readily available modernization. Lastly, we have RRC with PAF. Regards.

I'd like to go to Tchepone but I haven't got the tickets
By nascarpop · PostedI flew on one blind bat mission out of Ubon. The next night my assistant flew with the plane. They took a 37MM shell in the right wheel well. We repaired it enough to return to Naha. I don't remember the tail number. That was my only experience with blind bat.

Buildings were left in ruins and cars reduced to flaming wrecks when the Hercules C-130 came down on Tuesday in a residential area of Medan, a city of two million on the island of Sumatra. Air force chief Agus Supriatna said the manifest showed there were 113 people on board the plane - 12 crew and 101 passengers - when it crashed, and he did not believe any had survived "No, no. No survivors, I have just returned from the site," he told AFP in answer to a question. So far, 49 bodies had been recovered and taken to hospital, he said. Many passengers were likely to be family members of servicemen and women, said a spokesman for Medan air base, where the plane took off. At least one child has so far been confirmed killed. The local search and rescue agency also said that three people were killed on the ground when the 51-year-old plane went down near a newly built residential area, hitting a massage parlor and a small hotel. A rescue operation swung into action, with ambulances ferrying bodies from the site, and crowds of anxious residents gathering around a police cordon to view the smouldering wreckage. Residents of Medan described the terrifying moment just after midday when the plane came down. "It was very scary," said Novi, an employee of an international school who goes by one name, describing how she heard the plane and saw it flying very low before the crash. Another local resident Januar, 26, said the aircraft appeared to be in trouble just before the accident. "I saw the plane from the direction of the airport and it was tilting already, then I saw smoke billowing."
