  2. 43151F--have you been working with your county Veterans Service Office (VSO) or VFW to help you with this. Like Joewanafly I kept records of my two TDYS--one to CRB and other to TSN. If you do not have records, the VSO should help you request the National Records Center to send copies of your travel voucher. In 1969 I was the OIC of the Fab Branch at Naha. bob
  3. Yesterday
  4. Sorry I cannot help with your specific question. I was in the in the electric (67 - 68) shop with TDY's to CRB but I kept all my paperwork. When I applied the person across the desk couldn't believe it. Did you happen to know Ed Claire ?; We spent a couple days fixing a damaged Herk way up north. Good luck in your quest.

  14. Looks like a SKE fairing on top of the fuselage. Marine birds had a different fairing up there
  15. Bob, looks like it's a Field Operations Trainer (FOT), produced by a company named Nebula Group, USA. They have a Facebook page with photos and stories of the many locations of their FOTs, I couldn't see a tail number though of the this particular plane before modification.

  19. Oh, what base are you at? Just Curious.
  20. Three questions right now. It is strange that the servo is not driving if the trim tabs aren't keeping up. Does the Trim Monitor Test work? Does the normal elevator trim system work as advertised? What parts have been replaced or swapped?
  21. The purpose of the Synchrophaser System Droop Check was to ensure that the slave propellers will only drop a maximum of three percent (3%) in the event the master propeller/engine encountered a flameout or wind down. Note: At one time the maximum RPM drop was four percent (4%)
  22. When the bang starts in suck, squeeze, bang and blow.
  23. Yep.93-1041 Flew they noted that the trim lights were working and that there is feeling of "trying" to correct just that it felt weak. So weak that it can't maintain the hold. However, with just AP not coupled to flight director the feel is stronger to move the elevator with the servo.
  24. 93-1041? Bob
  25. Yes, both copilot and pilot side provide the issue. ALT SEL does work on the ground with the ttu. Tail number 1041. All lights do illuminate as they should. As of yesterday the autopilot breakout box was used as well with no faults found. It's due to fly this am for ops check.
  26. Both Pilot and CoPilot side I would guess. With Alt SEL does the AC climb/descend to the correct altitude? Correct lights illuminated and elevator trim (and light) operable during climb/descent?
  27. Three doctors were driving together to the hospital when they had an accident and all three died. They found themselves in front of the Pearly Gates, with St. Peter there shaking his head. "Gentlemen, I'm afraid Heaven is full - we just don't have room for you here," said St. Peter. "But, St. Peter, surely you recognize me!" the first doctor exclaimed. "I developed the DNA theory, and have helped improve millions of lives through my work." St. Peter shook his head, thinking, and finally said, "You're right, we just have to let you in. Come on -- we'll make room somehow." "And I know you recognize me, St. Peter," the second doctor said. "I developed the MRI, and because of my machine, millions of people with medical problems are helped." Again St. Peter is moved. "Yes, come on in. Surely you deserve to be here, too," he replies. Finally, the last doctor pipes in, "St. Peter, You must also know me -- I'm the doctor who developed HMOs." To this St. Peter only hesitates a moment, and then replies, "Yes, you, too, have a place in Heaven -- but you can only stay 3 days."
  28. A little kid was out trick-or-treating on Halloween dressed as a pirate. He rang a house's doorbell and the door was opened by a lady. "Oh, how cute! A little pirate! And where are your buccaneers?" she asked. The boy replied, "Under my buckin' hat."
