Isn't there a Sabre that tows a target banner for the fighter pilots to hone air gunnery skills on, up there as well? I was told some time back that AirSpray owned a Sabre and it was contracted to the military for this purpose.

The guys in Calgary do some incredible work and I love visiting whenever I am in the city.
We have a reconstructed Sabre on base right now getting a paint job. It was rebuilt in southern Ontario and will be doing the airshow circuit for this years anniversary of flight.

Thats a very nice Cessna 185 or late model 180. It takes a lot of work to keep aluminum polished like that. I wax my plane once a year and you would not believe how much surface area there is compared to a car. I would rather wax three big cars than one C180.

Here's some pics I found on another forum.

Projects that didn't make it in the middle of restoration for being put on display.







Here's the 23 after they finished it.

Also, here's a GIANT satellite image of Davis-Monthan.



Here's a link to download the torrent.

So I started my AMT school this week and also have been getting my tools in the mail.

Here's some of the engines they have on display in the main hallway.


From a PT-19 Trainer.



OX-5.



I can't remember what this came from but the production date was 1928 I think.

And the tools I've gotten so far:

My wife and I each got some stick time in a PT-19 this past fall. Lot of fun to fly low & slow.

The whole kit is from Snap-On directly minus a few specific tools that we buy from the school itself.

Oddly, they didn't send me real duckbill pliers for safety wire, just the square nose toothed kind. So I'll have to find a pair of those.

Milbar is another good name. Not as exspensive as Bluepoint but will still do the job.

Bump.

A little over half way through my first smester at my AMT school.

So far I've got straight A's (really didn't expect that) and I've learned how to bend, flare and install fasteners on rigid and flexible high pressure lines, cut and roll beads on aluminum tubing, drill and tap holes, drill/tap and insert helicoils, counter bore, counter sink, cut threads with a die, work/caculate basic electrical circuits and "service" lead acid and Ni-Cad batteries.

Even though I have to go from 5:30pm to 8:30-10:00pm at night, it's been a hell of a lot of fun and I'm always looking forward to the next class.




This summer well be learning sheet metal working, welding and assembly and rigging.

I went thru similar training in the mid 90's. Your schedule is similar to the one I had. Made for long days working full time.
