This old bird lived at Eielson AFB Alaska during my tenure with her, belonged to the 5010 Consolidated Aircraft Maint. Sq. The biggest thing I remember her for was the fact that she had somehow missed having a TCTO done on her MLG concerning strengthening the mount trunnions, making replacement MLG struts extremely difficult to find. She had never been painted, either, one of 4 shiney T-birds possessed at Eielson. High tech instruments on those old birds, If one didn't set the fuel count totalizers to 813 gallons upon refueling, you really had no idea how much fuel was in the aircraft. No Single point, either, if you had a one hosed truck, you did a lot of hose dragging back and forth to sort of keep the fuel balanced, 7 fuel tanks to fill, and not too much in one side, without putting some in the other side, That was a pain when it was 30 or 40 below zero!
