I love how in the AVSPECS video he describes that the Packard Merlin is the one that keeps the oil inside the engine.

Never heard that inlines "drooled" like radials. Interesting!

I am lucky enough to make a brief appearance in Episode 52 :D (and in the flashback in Episode 58)
That's me in the cockpit of 'Bessy' (CF-UFZ) doing a run-up.

Of course it's our ugliest Harvard that gets featured... :lol:

:partyman:

Hey, you're internet famous! :)

I saw the video and thought, hey, I know of that place from WIX. Cool that you were the one there running the plane though!

I've really enjoyed the segments on covering the elevator and I'm looking forward to the next segment (stitching). It's been really nice to see an actual in-depth segment that is done in a concise way with actual practical application.

I agree, makes me look forward to when the reassembly of DTD gets going

Just mentioning here that Buffalo's DC-3 C-GJKM crashed and is a constructive loss, no injuries

Not that there are many DC-3's or twin engined Convairs still flying commercially, but I've read about several accidents in recent years where one engine failed and the other was insufficient to maintain flight. Shouldn't both aircraft be able to limp to an airfield on one engine? Particularly (in this case) up North, where the temperatures are relatively low.

I think Buffalo is known for over loading their cargo flights if they need to.

do you have personal knowledge of that, or are you the classic rumour monger?

pretty idiotic comment from someone that lives a few thousand miles away
