That was definitely the callsign they were using, and we found it interesting as well. We just assumed it was CHQ mechanics who were running it about.
Well someone must have screwed up big time as said above they are different. I was an S5
employee and everytime we taxi A 170 we are "Shuttle MX
" or the 145 was "Chautauqua MX
" and the 175 we were "Brickyard MX
" that company sucks for transferring of tooling between the three. If you change a tire on a Republic with a Shuttle Torque wrench its like your contract MX
and have to write the S/N of the wrench etc etc. Not to mention the quals that didn't transfer to all 3. But I digress. I was in CLE
the day this event happened but I was in a Hangar fixing a OOS plane for the other company I worked for. It was a crazy day and there was alot of snow we had issues towing our aircraft to the ramp due to the low wings and he rather large snowbanks. Plus the MX
hangar we were at only was used to Citations so they didn't have the need to plow bigger.
Glad to see another amazing 170 back on its feet. What a great aircraft to fly on and work on!
