Dave, DC-3's have Pratt R-1830's. My very first job as a AMT was keeping an old DC-3 in the air. I then spent a year working at Precision Airmotive building radial engines.. God I smelled bad every day. My wife would make me strip xdown to my tightie whiteties in the apartment foyer BEFORE coming into our apartment.
You can correct your post if you want, but I don't want to make an issue of it. I get what you are saying.
Now days I work on the KC-46 tanker program. Though I have been off work since mid October. I had to have 1/3 of my foot hacked off due to a doctors really bad decision. I had to spend 11 days in the hospital enduring two surgeries to remove my two small toes and a big metal plate in my lower leg that had become septic. Sux getting old.
Dave, This is Ken. Been working at Boeing for almost 30 years, most of it on the 747. I am now on the Flightline on the Plastic Fantastic 787. I was Lead mechanic for a couple years until I pissed a 2nd level boss off. (Fuckin newbie to Boeing) and was reassigned to a analyst job up until last week. Now I am back to turning wrenches on the 787 Delivery. We do EVERYTHING on the plane. From fixing primary structure (because somehow a few hi-locks from Italy were never installed). To wipimg smudges and hand print off a seat tray table because some customer says its bad) If you want to chat about the good 'ol days give me a call. I am in Everett Wa. and am 3 hrs behind you. But you knew that. (425) 268-5674. If I don't answer I can't hear over the whine of an engine. I'll call you back when I have a few.
Hi Dave, this might be a strange question but do you know anything about a ´62 vette, supposedly owned by john mischuch back in the day, it was exported from florida to Sweden probably in the late 70´s, and now a friend of mine owns it, the cars name was "Outer Limits" if im not mistaken.
Would be fun to know some more history about it, ET, engine, some more pictures etc.
you can email me at: [email protected] since i don´t know this forum very well.
Thanks in advance
