  1. Anyone have a pdf B3 flight manual they would be willing to share? Thanks in advance.
  2. Geez Roo, you sure know how to kill a rumour!
  3. Has anyone received any details about the job posting in Thailand doing rebuilds on 4 212's. It was posted in the employment section of this forum about 2 weeks ago. I've sent an e-mail as well as a PM and haven't heard anything. I am curious who it is for. Anybody heard? cheers
  4. I am pretty sure Grant will be rolling in his grave, knowing he was taken in by a couple of ta ta's.
  5. I heard that the president and vice president "resigned". WTF?
  6. I believe it's in the Rolls Royce Maintenance Manual. I've used fabric paint, available in most sewing stores and in similar tubes as torque seal. It has good staying power and is a lot easier to remove when required. Cheers
  7. Aww man. Can someone PM the name to me? I have several buds working there.

    Might be dating myself a bit but give me a 212 anyday over a twinstar in the bush.
  9. I'm not sure if this is correct protocol, but am passing this along anyway. Wallace Wray Palmer Wray was born on November 11, 1938 in Rossburn Manitoba to Clair and Aleda. After a brief illness he passed away on July 11, 2010 at the age of 71 in Edmonton, Alberta. He will be forever missed and lovingly remembered by Deanna his wife of 52 years and his children Garry and Kathy, Sandra and Dwayne, Shelley, Barb, Ron and Rhonda, Michelle and Rob. Grandchildren Chris and Lindsey, Brad and Kristin, Derrick and Beth, Raelene, Avery, Maddy, Chase and Daine and great grandchildren Cohen and Grayson. He was predeceased by his parents Clair and Aleda and his sister Elizabeth. Wray served 23 years in the RCAF then continued his career as an engineer with Highland and Delta Helicopters. A committed family man he never hesitated to travel across town or for hundreds of miles to be with his children and grandchildren. He could always be counted on for advice, encouragement or a helping hand. A huge sports fan, Wray was actively involved in hockey, baseball, curling, hunting, fishing and stock car racing participating as a player, coach and referee. Special thanks to the staff at the Mazankowski, U of A and the Cross Cancer. Funeral services will be held on Friday July 16, 2010 at 11:00 am at the St. Albert Catholic Church officiated by Father Andrzej Stendzina. In lieu of other tributes, donations can be made to the Cross Cancer Institute or the Mazankowski Alberta Heart Institute.

  11. It is with great sadness that I pass along this information. Wray Palmer passed away this last Sunday of cardiac complications. He had been battling cancer as well. I don't have details of any services, but will post them here when I find out. I've had the pleasure of knowing Wray for over 30 years, having first met him when I was a teeny weeny little apprentice. We would cross paths occaisionally throughout our careers. He was a straight up dude and called 'em as he seen 'em. I really enjoyed working with him and just having a BS session over coffee. He is survived by a large family which I know he was extremely close to. I'm not sure of who all Wray worked for and perhaps someone could fill in here. I know he worked for Highland and Delta Helicopters. My sincere condolences to all the family. Godspeed Wray. DA
  12. Quite a slam in the guts when I heard the news. As everyone who has posted previously, he was one **** of guy! The best boss ever, a good friend, and pretty fair drinkin' buddy. He was honest, a straight shooter, full of integrity and always quick with a laugh. Amongst thousands of memories, I willl share one. I was supposed to be a "base engineer", but for about 7 years, I never spent a summer at home, being tasked with crewing on the mediums at the usual "Ft. St Somewhere" hot spots. Years later as we were working on a beer and clam on his deck, I asked him why he always sent me out in the summer. His answer was typical Howie as he licked some clam off his lips, "Well Dave, 'cause you'd always go." That was it, no fuss, no muss, no dressing it up. God, I had to laugh at that. My sincere condolences to the family. Dave Anderson
