small tanker, this was the OIL truck. Se they topped off the oils tanks, the easy way.

They called that thing the "bowser".

best, randy

Hi Randy,

Yup. I remember pulling that hose up over the wing to service the oil. Nasty job. Hard not to make a mess dripping residual oil all over every dam thing. Nasty!

And that reminds me of breathing the 115/145 fumes while refueling the under-wing tanks. Getícha dizzy<ng>.
Ha . . . itís no wonder I am the way I am<g>!
