  1. T.W. I have had similar feelings with the people that I trained and flew with and wished I had kept in touch just to say thanks and how are you doing. They like us were and are the building blocks of today that we can share the experiences of our training to the younger gen. to keep a wonderful historic airplane flying.


  2. Giz,

    I had worked with trichlorethelene as a cleaning solution but not for long. Very dangerous. By mistake I cleaned my power lawn mower air filter (sponge type) and didn't let it dry and installed it in the mower. Unknown to me when I started the mower clouds of white smoke developed, It was phosgene gas, I shut down the mower and ran.!!!


  3. Reading your message traffic,

    Was an electrical component or elec. maintenance done prior to the prob.?

    Look for compatability of parts. We had an elec prob on a H2, the gen was changed also the compatable GCU. They must match.

    I think your on the right track with the suppressor, that is what directly protects the digital gages.

    Just a thought.


  4. Initial start sequence when I retired in 2002 was:

    Pilot stated "Clear No 3 engine": LM "No 3 Clear";Pilot"Turning 3" (after each eng. was started sequence 4,2,1.)

    The engineer normally called the start.

    "Start valve open light":"Rotation";"Fuel Flow/enrichment";"ignition";"Oil Pressure"(both engine and gear box);"Hydraulic Pressure","Parallel", "Starter"(If pilot forgets at 60%)"series"; Peak TIT observed, RPM stabilized low if LSGI was selected, buttons pulled up monitor RPM to normal G.I. Rpm. A stop start command could be called by any crewmember if any abnormality was observed or occured.

    Much happens during this event.


  5. Yep remember it all good job men,

    Now here is one for you all, when the chutes were hanging in the aircraft and I had a maint. w/o I was one of the dirty guys that would work two fingers into the left side shoulder flap to reach the survival kit that had a neat little knife amoung other things.

    Don't worry the chutes were inspected monthly and were carried on local pro training flts.
