C5A takeoff - hog in the fog. Welcome. My dad was stationed at March.
Keep practicing and you'll be ready to step up to a C177.
He wasn't talking about your present job. He was talking about the Air Force way of doing things. Comprehension, it's not just for caveman anymore.
Ah, he responded to my comment that was pertinent to me, not his Air Force experience.
You obviously checked your comprehension at the door.
Ooook Glenn, whatever.
If you looked at it from an unbiased perspective you'd see that your comment should have been made to him, like below, IFTFY
Ugh. Why couldn't you have been a C-130 pilot!
Yeah right. What I actually wrote to refresh your mind. The conversation was about the Air Force and that's why he posted what he did. YOU of course didn't even address what he wrote but went off on your present job.
Easy there, fellers. I was more or less eluding to the overtones of the "mx is the airworthy blessing authority", and attempted to highlight that there is a world where that attitude doesn't always prosper. Nothing more, nothing less.
And to the OP, welcome aboard, and it's too bad you aren't fortunate enough to have an FE critique your every action With that said, the C-17 is a pretty nifty piece of machinery.
Yeah. We agreed. You just assumed I was in mx.
But, I really shouldn't fault you for making that assumption. Most people have no idea what aircraft inspectors at an airline, do. Talk about airworthiness blessing authority... I've been doing this for almost 30, of my 40 years in this field, and I've worked for several airlines, 4 to be exact. The company I work for has 80 aircraft inspectors, we are divided between 3 heavy maintenance bases. Some of our responsibilities are: engine borescope, routine and nonroutine, such as after bird ingestion, over temp, over speed. NDT, I'm level II certified in disciplines ET, UT, PT, MT and RT, but we currently contract out X-ray. We travel worldwide in emergency support of line maintenance operations. We perform the primary inspections on aircraft in heavy check. We are the second set of eyes, and buy off on maintenance tasks (RII items) that if not done properly, or improper parts or materials are used, could effect the safe operation of an aircraft, e.g. major structural repairs and major alterations, engine, flight control, landing gear, installations and adjustment/test, rigging. We oversee aircraft weighing and buy off on it. And we audit on- site maintenance documentation, and the facility, and anything else the Chief wants us to do. Tom-D likes to poke fun at the fact we use "job cards" (work cards to be exact) but when you are dealing with hundreds of tasks having multiple steps and dozens of individuals doing the work on a heavy, you can't just use a simple checklist like he's required to use on a bugsmasher. However, we are in the process of going paperless and will be completely electronic and e-sign for everything before long.
If you ever run into a load master named Rachel Kelty, she's an ex-controller friend of mine. She's in the ANG unit out of Anchorage AK.
Does Mrs Tim know about her Tim? Hmmm?
Ha. I met her when she was 18, just a pimple faced baby. She's 28 and married now. I could explain it to the Mrs but like every other controller I work with save a couple, she wouldn't know or care who she is.
"Run into" is that code?
