    Rhein Main Restaurant

    DC10FE,I remember a beer garden that was near or next to RR tracks or a station.Does this description ring any bells?This place had 2 or 3 double entrance doors,a large main floor with a stage at one end (opposite the entrance doors),a balcony on 3 sides.I'm going back to '62 or 3 and '64.The place was always crowded and the beer maids were BUSY. Another thing I remember is some young German lad would try to walk on the balcony rail all the way around.Never saw one make it. They either fell back into the balcony or crashed on to the main floor.

    I don't remember the restaurant but remember a few bars down town,the rocket club and the German canteen just off the flight line.That chow hall was great!Had some good times at R M and Frankfurt.

    Tyre of c130b ac

    Hard to believe he started TO roll w/the parking brake on.As to the anti skid,it was left off or disarmed until during the T O check list called for "ANTI SKID" and the response was "on the roll".Soon as roll commenced,C P flipped the switch,little red light went out and all was good(we hoped). The shortest F 14 landing I ever witnessed :A glitch in the brakeing system caused the brakes to lock unbeknownonsed to the test pilot.I was nearly a mile from the touchdown point when I saw 2 puffs of smoke and then heard boom boom.Of course the tires were destroyed but the wheels were worn off half way to the axel.
  4. I had no idea there was many "A" models still flying.Be interesting to know who owns them,where based and amount of flight hours on them.
