C-124

This is a little off the topic but I find these old forms and log's quite interesting. Here is an old C-124 Engineers log from a flight from Wake Island to Hickam AFB, Hawaii. 14 November 1969, On A 19th MAS (Military Airlift Squadron) 62 nd Wing, out of McChord AFB, Washington.
I was an aircraft Mechanic in the 19th MAS at Kelly AFB , Texas 1968-70 on these great old birds called The "Old Shakey". This form gives a good look at the Engineers Performance Log. We phased out most of our aircraft in early 1970


What a great old bird, as an aircraft electrician we worked on many systems, I use to love to crawl through the wing from the inboard engines to the outboard engines, entering in P compartment below deck.

These logs have a great wealth of info for the hard core enthusiast who enjoys looking at fuel flows, gross weight's and engine performance. I have a few C-141 flights also, that I will post later.

I remember this particular aircraft very well we called her "Balls 01" , for she had continual generator and voltage regulator problems, she was a real problem to parallel the generators

Also included here is how to read these log's if you are not familiar with them.

Thanks for the sample.
Do you have a link where a person could find the logs from a specific mission? Or any other info on the records of a specific C-124?
