And what country can preserve its liberties if their rulers are not warned from time to time that their people preserve the spirit of resistance? Let them take arms. The remedy is to set them right as to facts, pardon and pacify them. What signify a few lives lost in a century or two? The tree of liberty must be refreshed from time to time with the blood of patriots and tyrants.
Check out the profile of a Cessna Grand Caravan sometime.

During WW11 the newest fighter pilots had to take the beer, in travel pods, up to altitude. Only took about 15 minutes to get down to a perfect temperature.Delete
The US tested a personnel pod, basically an outfitted droptank, in the Pacific for use under P-38 Lighting fighters. Even had a window on the front of the pod.Delete

I had an uncle that was a flight instructor. He bought a 5 year old Cessna 185E Ag sprayer that stalled and ended up in a pecan tree in 1970. He bought it still in the tree. After 2 years of lots of work on it it was certified to fly once again. It only had 2 seats and had full instrumentation for IFR flight. My uncle used it for instrument ratings and to haul freight. It had an extended length passenger door because of the agriculture design to make loading chemicals easier. When it was empty it was a dream to fly as it was like your mother's station wagon with a big block, sans rear seats. It was basically a grown up 150 on steroids. He had a cargo pod and would use it occasionally.ReplyDelete
