The guys, on the right dragging the two wheeled cart are filling the gaps between the concrete slabs with a tar like filler.

Kurt-was it you who put the props in "Y" position for this shot lol? Nice picture thanks for sharing.

Many thanks Kurt - I have been following you work on Airliners and really appreciate seeing the old stuff

Dave.Thank you, you're very kind. No, it wasn't me. I can add to it,in the RAAF on the C-47, we as engine technicians had to put the blades in that position on our pre and after flight checks. For us it made easier to pull the engines through on pre flight, that was done to shift collected engine oil from the bottom cylinders of a radial engine.

Ian, thank you it's my pleasure. I have slowed down on Airliners, majority if my slides negative film are in bad shape. I don't mind the time getting them to an acceptable quality. However it takes a fair while before you get word back on acceptance or not. Thanks again for your comments.

Ian, I just had a look at your great collection of photos.I'm envious.
ian mcdonell
Many thanks Kurt, you are more than kind
I wish I still had my stuff from the 60's but unfortunately it is long gone
People like you, Danny Tanner, Tony Arbon etc bring back great memories

Seems there is a misidentification here. The Globemaster II is a C-124, not a C-123. The C-123 was the "Provider" and was only 2 engine.

Not to be too picky, but it's actually a C-124, "Big Shaky".
Dave Sheehy
Kurt-thanks and I sure can identify with the the oil in the lower cylinders! If you check in my gallery with the link, the mechanic on the ladder on the inboard B-4 stand is me, covered with oil ! :)

Alan, thanks for pointing out out the "typo". I agree with you the Fairchild Provider did have only two engines.

daigneau thank you for your comment, much appreciated. Have corrected the "typo".

Dave, it was a hazard. Didn't matter how hard you tried you always finished with oil on you. Thanks for the illustration.

THIS IS A C-124C NOT A C-124A. THE A MODEL DID NOT HAVE HEATERS ON WING TIPS. I HAVE OVER 2000 HOURS AS A FLIGHT ENGINEER ON THE C MODEL.

I rode on this aircraft type Shaw AFB to Udorn Thailand in 1965. What a drag. I was an USAF rescue helo pilot and we were bring aircraft and people on three C-124. No a/c, no pressure and the best speed around 200 kts. I think it took over two weeks as the aircraft broke on every landing. In 1969 I was flying these aircraft at RG AFB Kansas City while working for TWA flying the B-707. It was called "old shakey " and the F/E should have been wearing stars as he could say weather it stopped or went. I fled it to Europe and Asia during this time but I never really felt comfortable in the A/C seat.

Blakeersom thank you for your insight. I had this one and the other photos of the C-124 down as "C" models. However recently another viewer indicated they were "A" models.The viewer mentioned the "A" model had round propeller tips and the "C" had square tips. A web search showed the C-124 had more powerful engine fitted. What I learned from you is I didn't know the wing tip pods were heaters. The following link takes you to the comment that it is a "A" model. lightaware.com/photos/view/6646302-7f3a9f8b128148bc096afee3afd3ac5f9249d2df/user/kurtfinger/sort/votes/page/1

Blakeersom. Joe Baugher pages mention the conversion from an "A" to a "C" but not the date of the conversion.
