My very favorite type of aircraft. i worked for united airlines as an a and p
mechanic for 33 years retiring in 1992. i worked in salt lake city during the
dc-6,7 and convair days. we were all rated for taxi and run-up. great fun to
fire-up the engines and taxi to the run-up area at the end of the runway for
a complete engine run after an engine change. this type was extra special to me.
