Well – a couple of those are amazingly “high-tension” pics! Kinetic energy forced into a potential energy container!

They call that in flight engine servicing in the first picture Rob? Thanks!

There ARE safer ways of changing a spark plug !
The others are great too.

Can you imagine doing that on a Boeing 747 in flight. I wonder if the mechanic got danger pay, as I don’t see a safety harness anywhere. Great pictures………….I wonder, if the Friday Briefing is coming back Rob……………. Just asking.

You wouldn’t want to drop your wrench!
What is the aircraft in # 3? – Navy version of the Texan/Harvard perhaps?
Robert Royes said on March 13, 2018
Looks like a Navy version-SNJ-4C or 5C

There was a hooked version of the SNJ used to carrier quals. Or a ships aircraft from the utility unit aboard. I’m thinking #1 myself.

Well there’s your problem right there lady. The combustulator has become detached from the electrostatic disparater which is causing the eclectic rotor assembly to make the “ funny noise” you mentioned. If you fly it any farther you’ll do some serious damage to your husband’s airplane, but I’ve got the parts and if I drop everything I can be finished by supper and it will only cost $499.99.

The inflight mechanic photo looks like one of those endurance flights from the 30s, where they tried in flight refueling. They must have needed an engine adjustment,as well. Curtiss Robin?
