C-124 Takeoff Procedures from the 1C-124A-1
While looking through some of my old manuals I came across the C-124 dash 1. I kept this manual after we closed down the 19th Military Airlift Squadron. I worked in the 19th MAS /62nd Wing MAC, Electric Shop as an aircraft electrician 1968-69 at Kelly AFB , San Antonio Texas. Old Shaky was a cool aircraft to work on greasy , oily, a generally good old knuckle buster for the mechanic. I am proud to have worked on and served with this old bird. At Kelly we had all C models.
An old flight engineer on Shaky's told me "If you ever fly one of these birds upside down, the flight crew would be killed by all the nuts, bolts and safety wire that would get loose". After working on them I beleive it would be true!
Here are a few pages from the manual for the Takeoff procedures up to cruise.
