B-29 and B-24 Goodness

Took a break this morning to wander over and chat with the B-29 and B-24 crew chiefs and to have a look around before the crowds arrived. So, this is old school flying, real stick and rudder, knobs, switches and dials. no computers involved. The view outside the engineers window was pretty cool with the B-24 sitting next door.

The largest part of my existence is keeping the prop at the tunnel working. Talking to these guys and actually getting to talk to the right guys looks to make that so much more simple. As we were out on the ramp the Mrs commented that the blades had a cut line already painted on them about where we have to chop the blades to make them fit in our wind tunnel. that got the guys attention right quick.
