You are correct; painted green and labeled "aviator breathing oxygen."
>> SlamClick, Thanks for letting me know for sure that "aviator breathing oxygen" bottles are infact painted green. I believe I've seen a few photos of the round fire bottles you mentioned (but couldn't find a photo
). I think they use the chemical Halon to suppress a fire.
>> CitationJet, Thank You, for your detailed info about the rectangular & cylindical silver tanks against that bulkhead. When you ask about a Cessna Citation bizjet, and a member responds who has the username "CitationJet" who's from Wichita, KS
(Cessna's main home), you know you're gonna get excellent info!
>> AsstChiefMark & DeltaGuy, Ha Haaa, that's funny!
>> HAWK21M, you asked .....
I was wondering the same thing. Then I thought that maybe the red flag that hangs down from them that says on it "Remove Before Flight" might get in a mechanics way ..... just a thought.
>> Jeb94, you mentioned .........

Tennis balls are cheaper and just as effective at covering the pitot tubes.
Regarding the cost, IMHO, there's no way that CitationJet isn't carrying proper pitot covers (and static port covers & an attitude indicator cover), somewhere inside a storage compartment (these items were kept inside a compartment in the steps of the airstair door on many Falcon 20 bizjets I used to refuel, etc).
I see you're an Aircraft Maintenance Technician, so you probably know what it's like to back into a proper pitot cover .... made of rubber or not, they're rather "pointy" aren't they!!!
I have one last question ......
The black box in the nose that the weather radar appears to be wired to has two black cylindrical objects sticking up from the top of it ....... what are these two objects for?
