What kind of ‘sight gauges’ are we talking about?
I have only seen a true sight glass gauge in one airplane (an EAB). Seen a lot of sight gauges...
Or came in too fast.
A turbine engine will still run if misfueled with avgas, just runs hotter and is not good for the longevity of the engine. But, it...
They brought two tires out to the aircraft, but only ended up changing the one that blew.
Especially considering it was fully loaded with pax when it happened.
Southwest dropped one on its nose last year when the tug driver got got a little overzealous on pushback.
So, after the tire change, we taxi back to a gate. They announce that they have to take care of all the paperwork and refuel and be...
Unfortunately, I don’t think fix a flat works when the tire actually blows up.
