Any Other Mechanics go on Road Trips/Field Service alot? Any Good Stories, Places, Broken Things, etc.....
In the past 2 Months I have been to LIH OGG ITO KOA (When helping with go!)
And FSD (Change a tire) GRB (T/R that stuck in the deployed position on landing) and BMI (Fuel Leak) add AVP and Thats all I can remember. These are great because you have to use alot of smarts to use very minimal equipment to get the plane back up. I was hoping someone with more years in the biz have some crazy stories, I have yet to get really interesting things but here is my favorite:
AVP- Had a CRJ-200 get struck by lightninh exploding the winglet and fried the Flux valve among other things. Got a ferry permit for flight with CA compass and standby and speed-taped the rest of what was left of the winglet. The guy at the FBO there thought Bomba was crazy!
