Default Re: tell a Model A related story

On August 24 I wrote about my total engine failure and the fast and clear thinking that followed.
Last night I watched a documentary about Captain Sullies ditch into the Hudson River. He had no choice so his decision was simple. His thinking too was clear and fast. He is to be commended on many aspects and in particular he checked all passengers were out before he vacated. Then I know he gave the shirt off his back to a gentleman who was very cold.
I began to think about all of my engine failures, some complete failures and some partial. There have been many and I've decided to write about all of those that I can remember. Importantly why they failed.
I will publish these stories in the near future. A quick count comes to 13 in all.
I know many things,
But I don't know everything,
Sometimes I forget things.

And there are times when I have a long memory. is offline   Reply With Quote
