For reasons unknown, a 124 has twice visited DFW over the past few months. On takeoff, it flies directly over my house at around 2k - 3k feet. The entire house vibrates from the roar of its engines. Simply amazing aircraft.
I got this at KDFW 10/18/18. In rush hour traffic, lol. https://photos.app.goo.gl/UYMo1Z7PYQgLLrEj6
WOW... Nice picture... But from a Maintenance Point Of View, I sure would hate to have to do a Full Tire and Brake Change on that A/C... LOL!
Wouldn't be as bad as having to do it on the 225...that's a lot of tires.
You got that right!
On a B-36, there were 36 spark plugs per engine w/six engines. Some 216 (some numbers given is 336) spark plugs had to be changed after each flight. Each -36 had 7,000 vacuum tubes to look after.
"Six turning, 4 burning"
Sometimes it was Four turning, Four burning, One on Fire, One missing....
That would have been a sight to see lol.
Ahh so it was Four turning, Five burning, One flew away
OH come on rapid you know you have had to see that. If not im sure its floating around youtube someplace lol.
Oh I wish..tbh, Id love to try and find out where the XC-99 went and the 2 YB-60's..I still think they would have out hauled a B-52.
It was sitting at Kelly Airforce base from what i heard. I think it also got disassembled and take to the Wright Patterson airforce base were it was restored and im gonna guess they put it in the Museum of the Air force.
