On a completely different subject!


Recommended Posts

I know a lot of you are sitting around the proverbial pot belly stove, drinking a hot choccie,, reliving the last fire season, and hoping for another repeat, or bending wrenches in the cold dark hangar, trying to fix what was broke this last summer, so, to take your mind off on a completely different tangent, let's watch this one.

 This was brought to my attention a couple of days ago, and it is on fire, Centrus Eneregy,  LEU.NYSE, is a small U.S. company that enriches uranium and has caught the attention of a few investors, no not investors, speculators, because this thing is going up like a bottle rocket, and if nothing else, should be a lot of fun to watch.

 I am not, in any way promoting this thing, all i am saying is, during this shoulder season, if your bored, tune in to this rocket ride, and for F**cks sake, let's talk about any thing else but Covid!

Ok...here goes...The one in Churchill first. I got sent up to Churchill to do a couple of 100 hr inspections on a couple of 206's. I was told before I left Winnipeg that a hangar had been had to do the work...I get up there...no heat..no light....well better than the last time I was there changing a freewheel on the ramp in a 30 knot snowstorm....so I start working on the first ship...tail rotor blades are so black you can't tell they had any white paint on them...I get a car heater going on the blade so I can clean off the crap and I can see damage to the leading edge of the blade about 1 inch in from the tip...someone...I won't give names had put pro seal in a hole on the leading edge of the tailrotor blade...this is not what I wanted to see starting on this ####!

He gets on the blower to my boss!!!
