In the early eighties, SaudiArabian operated TriStars on an extensive network, and 'round about 1982, started to do their heavy maintenance checks in JED.
After the first 'D' check, I personally was scheduled for a PC
in the aircraft, the simulator then not approved for PC
After the PC
was completed, we climbed up to 8000msl, and completed a series of full stalls, both clean and in the approach configuration.
A Lockheed senior production test pilot was in the RHS just to be sure everything went according to hoyle.
An interesting experience, to say the least.
Think i'll leave the test flying to test pilots.
