An Oshkosh Miracle!!

Previous Index Next

The first day of my Oshkosh Miracle draws to a close. Shortly after this picture was taken, the pivot bolt was replaced with the assistance of the Emergency Repair crew who seemed to have every tool imaginable to do the job. We still had the problem of not being able to retract the nosegear. Traveling across half the continent limited to gear extension speed did not appeal at all. After consultation with the Repair Crew, a plan was made. N724X was rolled back to its original tiedown to await the next day.
