  1. The pilot of the future will be one man in the pilots seat, and a dog in the right seat. The pilots job is to feed the dog, and the dog's job is to bite the pilot if he touches anything.
  2. One of the best things about retiring from the military you now have freedom of speech that you can not use while serving in the military.
  3. AND OUR PRESIDENT DECIDED HE'S NOT GOING TO ARLINGTON TO LAY A WREATH AT THE TOMB OF THE UNKNOWN SOLIDER THIS YEAR.. HOW SAD FOR ALL THE VETS THAT PAID A PRICE SO EVEN HE COULD BE WHERE HE IS..
  4. Where was Provide Comfort? Provide Hope was Africa, and Provide Promise was Sarajevo. Correct?
  5. This was part of the strongest man competition in Charleston, WV last summer.
  6. I filled one out while stationed at Pope in 71. I designed a stand that held the bottom of the T 56 engine (belly pan) when it was removed from the QEC kit. We wrestled them on the floor rebuilding them, they got beat up alot taking the oil coolers out, and making other repairs. So I designed a stand that held them up, and you could roll them over, it worked very well.. It was approved after 18 months. $150. Good money in 71...
  7. I remember when I was stationed at Pope (69-73) the crew started all 4 engines for their mission, and the FE did not notice the c/bs pulled on the oil shut off valves... you know the rest of the story..
  8. I never worked on A's... This was on the E's (62s) when I worked on them..
  9. We use to pull those breakers at the last flight of the day to shut the oil shut off valves on the E models this would keep the oil from flooding the turbine section.. The breakers was pulled to keep the prop from feathering while pulling the fire handle to shut the oil valve off... We did this if some one still had external, or gtc, power on..
  10. I'v been retired for 6 years,,, but if I remember right the only thing the battery will do is shut off all the valves to that engine, and not feather the prop... I will get the answer tomorrow unless some one else gives us the answer...
  11. It is impossible for those engines to keep running if feathered.. If you pull the fire handle all those valves you mentioned are shut off... When you pull the fire handle every thing is shut off electricly.. When you pull the condition lever the fuel is mechanically shut off, and the prop feathers and your other valves stays open... If the GTC was not running at the time of the feather the props would not have enough electric power to go all the way to feather ..
  12. Some of theses ACs are flying over the field for 3 hours before they can land,,, what ever happened to air drops to get these people food and water in a much faster pace?
  13. Let us know what you did to fix it.. VH is my choice, since you checked every thing else out..
  14. You need to replace valve housing in the prop on that engine
