I need to get the 90 Mini back on the road. Time to get back to the fuel system modifications. What’s your plan for the day?

Joppositlock: Delta Gigs

Joppositlock: Delta Gigs

In the spirit of some of Sweden’s posts, the big D is looking for some folks in the TechOps engineering org. There are likely to be some more in the next couple of months along with some in our quality org. It’s a good place to work. We run hard, but they take pretty good care of us.

The Bad Parent

The Bad Parent

I dropped my son at Boy Scouts and sat in the parking lot watching the Hot Rod Power Tour video by Roadkill. We were there when they were filming with the Maverick. think I saw the Fiero and the Plymouth. We were also there for the Mustang burnouts.

Hercules Hurcules - Evergreen Photo Dump

Hercules Hurcules - Evergreen Photo Dump

Spending some time with family out west this week. Swung by the Evergreen Museum to see the Hughes H-1 Hercules. Some kids call it the Spruce Goose. It’s a lovely plane. My son didn’t really understand how big it is until he saw it. It had the world’s longest wingspan until Stratolaunch flew a few months ago. The museum is nice. Lots of cool planes.

I’m on a jet for 4.5 hours. As an added bonus my seat is right next to the lav and the flight attendants used the bin above my seat for storage. I have plenty of time so AMA.

Apollo 11 Landing

Apollo 11 Landing

Tomorrow marks the 50th anniversary of the end of the Apollo 11 mission. I’ve been listening to Apolloinrealtime.org each night before bed and it’s been great. I know I can go back and listen, and listen to Apollo 17 as well, but it won’t be quite the same.

Fun fact: Columbia was returned to North American Rockwell after processing for a vacuum bake to remove residual moisture from landing....

A Bit of Apollo Today

A Bit of Apollo Today

I dropped the boy child off at Space Camp today. He’s stoked. I took a little time to say hello to the Saturn V, an Apollo 14 moon rock and Apollo 16 command module while I was there. So cool to see them up close. Doesn’t matter that we were there last summer. I also explained to my friend’s 13 year old daughter how people went to the bathroom in space back then. Basic response from her was,...

Whale To The Museum

Whale To The Museum

They have moved the big girl to the Delta Flight Museum this morning. This is 747-400 #1 that accomplished the flight test requirements prior to being delivered to Northwest Airlines. The aircraft was removed from service and prepped for the museum by Delta TechOps. To get to the museum they had to remove a bunch of fense at the Atlanta airport, a burm and they had to build ramps off the...

Bums Hanging Out

Evo
Bums Hanging Out

Still fixing little things on the Evo from the accident we had a couple of years ago. Today it was the license plate frame. It was all bent up and the inserts for the screws were gone. Fixed that and replaced the bulbs for the plate lights. Now I’m going to enjoy a cool water and change the oil on the 90 Mini.
