  1. I was told that it is because the external air connection is right next to #2 and external power is on the left side as well. So while 3 &4 are being started the age equipment can be removed at the same time.
  2. Hi Laurent, As I recall the kits are the same except that the J kit has the different props and engines. (naturally ) The kit's J engines look like better replicas that the -9's they are supposed to replicate. If you use the kit engines I don't think anyone except us will know the difference. All you will need to do is install the 3 blade parts/ props. As for external tanks you will need to find some that come with F-101 Vodoo's. They have the same tanks. You will need to find a drill bit the same size as the troop windows if you are planning to add landing lights. I will check my parts stash. I am pretty sure that I have all the 3 blade props/parts I also have extra cargo comp windows to use as landing lights. You are on your own as far as finding the external tanks. I have lots of the standard tanks in use today but not the A model ones. You can check out the OZMODS web page in Austraila they used to have an A model conversion set available last time I checked. Let me know if you want /need my spare parts. just let me know where to send them. Good luck, Jerry "Fenmonster" Fenwick
  3. Back in '89 (I think) I was in the first engine run class at Pope that did not jump chocks in the real aircraft. I was looking forward to it. When I did my first real live run, as a coincidence the tail # (1262 I think) was the same as the simulators. --Fenmonster

  5. Bravo rotes were treated like Las Vegas is today.. What happened on rote stayed on rote. Take Care
  6. This may explane the origan of the "green game" we used to play on 141 airdrop msn's. Any use of the word green in any context, at anytime from leaving the chocks at home station to return to home station constitutes buying a round of beer as a "punisment". The fun part was trying to get formation lead to say Greensboro instead of the icode during departure routing readback from ATC. --Jerry "fenmonster" Fenwick
  7. I think the loadmaster could have stuck his Squadron sticker on the nose if he wanted too. Would have been fun to watch the fighter pilot try to explain how it got there when he got back.

    So what did you get her; if I may ask?
  9. Or not flip that switch......
  10. This video is of 0945 crashing doing a lapes at the Sicily DZ at Bragg. There was a dyess acft that crashed a couple of years later doing a heavy drop (I think it was a Sheridan also) Load hung up and a loadmaster jumped up on the tank with a machatte to cut the lines unsucessfully and he was killed on impact. The rest of the crew survived. Jerry "Fenmonster" Fenwick
  11. Congratulations! I remember my first qualified trip without an instructor. Kinda strange to look over at the bunk and its empty for the first time. (C-141)
  12. 29500 on rote at Moldyhole back in 1990. We wanted higher but ATC couldn't give it to us. He then asked if we were trying to set the rote record. Which ended up 35000 by a different crew. Jerry Fenwick
  13. Hi John, Sorry for the delay on the drawings, had other things going on. So far no luck in finding the drawings I'm looking for. I found some small ones in an old maint orientation handbook, but it doesn't show where the pins go. I think I have the shots I'm looking for on a training CD somewhere. I'll see if I can still find them. I know I have seen them somewhere... --Jerry Fenwick
