All I ask is the chance to prove that money can't make me happy.

Another great talent laid to rest. Believe it or not but in 1969 I went through technical training (Aviation Electricians Mate) in the U.S.Navy with Glen Campbell's nephew.
His name was Dallas Campbell. He said he liked his uncle but Glen was a dictator as a babysitter. :lol:

An Aircraft Mechanic only needs two tools, Duct Tape and WD40.
If it moves and it's not supposed to - use the Duct Tape.
If it doesn't move and it's supposed to - use the WD40.

It seems there are a lot more incidences of tipping cranes here in the last few years. It's like the operators aren't getting trained like they once were. There are certain parameters involved such as how high and far the boom can be extended with so much weight etc. I don't get it. The training to costly or time consuming for the companies?
