  1. It's been that way for quite some time. If you are not logged in, certain categories have been limited to members only for a while.
  2. I've had a blade pocket lift on a 61, that was bad enough. Cannot imagine the ride these folks had.

  4. If you are refering to the liners under the helmet, I have known a few pilots that have purchased welder caps at Princess Auto. Very inexpensive and do the trick. It's not a fashion show as they are under your "lid". They sell them individually or in packs of 24. Cheers, BG
  5. Deepest condolences to the colleagues and families involves. It has been a while since I worked and lived in Terrace. B Garnhum

  7. Very sad indeed. A great pilot and person lost.
  8. That makes sense. It would certainly lack power if the rings were worn as badly as expected.
  9. Indeed, After draining a main tank in an S61 a number of years back, in order to do a boost pump change, we poured the drained fuel into the aft tank of the Chevy pickup truck that was used to haul around the Grumman ops trailer. The base manager of that particular base informed us that they still used Jet B so that tank was used sparingly and was given a few quarts of ATF (for lube) until it could be burnt off and topped up with diesel. Jet B has a fair bit of Naptha in it. Naptha is "white Gas" or better known as BBQ lighter fluid. It lights off better at high altitudes, burns cleaner but will destroy your diesel engine as it runs the rings dry without as much lubrication as the Diesel does. RH
  10. Is Lucille a 64F? I flew support for an F model in 1998 but I cannot recall the name on her nose.
  11. This is the last Skype image I have of Dev as he was asking "Are you drinking my son under the table tonight Bob?" Jim and I were having a good time that evening and chatting to Dev and Sherry always topped off the night. Rest in peace my friend. Taken way too soon. Bob Garnhum
  12. Some of my fondest and sometimes scariest memories are while flying in that area years ago. Beautiful country but sometimes very unforgiving. My deepest sympathies to my fellow VIH colleagues and to the families involved. Certainly a bad day for all of us.
