Plane I''ve hated to work on

As a response to the Peelots and their sweaty palms about the favorite aircraft that they have flown. I propose the initiate a list of the worst a/c any of you have ever worked on. My first choice is the MU2 - because to work on one is to hate one


FWIW the best a/c have ever flown in was a CF104D. 450kts, 50ft, or, lower than a snakes belly at the speed of heat

As as I sat back an thought about it, I realized that some airplanes that are a pain to service, often have more utility or capabilities than those that are easier.


However, I kept thinking about operators. I conclude that it doesn''t really matter what model you''re working on, its the operator that makes the biggest difference.


I won''t go into specifics (or names) here, but I''m sure that many here have been in the position where we say something like "I wouldn''t touch the King Airs that ABC company flies".


There are a few operators out there that turn nice airplanes into junk in the few years that they operate them. Once you take the airplane over, you quickly realize how neglected the thing is. Corrosiion everywhere, inspections that obviously haven''t been done, (except for on paper) undocumented mods, outstanding ADs etc etc....


These are truly the airplanes that are a horror to maintain.
