Work on the oil cooler actuators and other things topside was just a blurr of activity yesterday. The real JR came up with another landing light for the right wing so we are anxious for our electrical genius's to try it out next weekend. We had lots of visitors over the weekend, in part, due to the FAAST TEAM holding three days of classes along with the high altitude training chamber. The museum was pleased to be able to host this event. The CAMI folks from Oklahoma City put on a fine show and it appears some pilots got some very good lessons on the effects of hypoxia first hand. We saw some pretty woosey looking people in there really enjoying themselves until the instructor had to put the oxygen mask back on them.
There are times when being a HE-MAN just isn't wise like when trying to show everybody else how long you can go on low oxygen!! I don't think our guys up on the wing were in danger of hypoxia though. We had baked taters and chili for lunch so maybe there were other dangers involved. Maybe I shouldn't have put beans in the chili??
Anyway, we were also pleased to have the O2 Lady drop by to join us for chili and another special guest which we have been anticipating for several weeks. More in the next post about that. The other JR
