Sean forwarded these photos. If I had to put a caption to the first one it would be, “TOO HIGH! TOO HIGH! I didn’t sign up for this!




Ford GP. The guys on the horses look a little jealous.

    This was the normal means od travel for us and our jeep trailer in 1978. The trailer had an tailgate and was set up for commo. work. I spent many nights sleeping in the center between commo. gear. This is where I spent my 21 birthday. The trail had canvas top on bows.

    The twin rotor helicopter is a Piasecki H-21 which was later made by Boeing. It’s powered by a Curtis-Wright R1820 radial engine mounted at an angle in the aft fuselage just forward of the round holes. The A and P school I attended had one and I really enjoyed working on it and learning about it. It’s big, it’s loud and the one I worked on would shoot flames out the exhaust stack when a magneto check was performed. Lots of fun for a bunch of young kids in winter.

    That’s cool Paul, Kinda similar to the top one. It had the motor at an angle in the front compartment under the pilot.
