You ought to see that fire coming out of the rear engine sitting on the ramp!!
LOLOL don't remind me.......I haven't told that story in years, Ober. Added item on pre-flight checklist.....CHECK.
And to The Other JR, Ober can attest to me having back up crew on the ground but rarely does said crew get to actually share in the inflight experience.
By inflight experience, I assume you are referring to actual flying during an airshow where only min crew is allowed as opposed to X country to get to the show and back or to get into the Mile High Club? That might be more fun if the crew consists of more than one. See, that is what is so cool about a bomber or transport, you can take all of your friends. And if an engine is on far, they will alert you faster than the little flashy light on the panel.
For those needing translation, "far" is Texan for "fire". For years we thought the Three Wise Men were firemen cause they come from a far. I guess it lost something in the translation from the ancient languages? Anyway, the restoration team should be out in full force this morning if anybody wants to drop by the hangar to see the K.
