I remember sharing these SQUAWK's (maintenance complaints/problems, generally known as squawks, submitted over the years by Pilots to maintenance engineers. After attending to the squawks, maintenance crews are required to log the details of the action taken to solve the pilots' squawks. Problem - Left inside main tyre almost needs replacement. Solution - Almost replaced left inside main tyre.) with SQUAWK a few years back. SQUAWK thought these were funny and so did I. So...a fond memory of a shared laugh for me. RIP, buddy.

Thanks for spreading the word, Amy.

Problem - Test flight OK, except autoland very rough. Solution - Autoland not installed on this aircraft.

Problem - No. 2 propeller seeping prop fluid. Solution - No. 2 propeller seepage normal. Nos. 1, 3 and 4 propellers lack normal seepage.

Problem - Something loose in cockpit. Solution - Something tightened in cockpit.

Problem - Dead bugs on windshield. Solution - Live bugs on backorder.

Problem - Autopilot in altitude-hold mode produces a 200-fpm descent. Solution - Cannot reproduce problem on ground.

Problem - Evidence of leak on right main landing gear. Solution - Evidence removed.

Problem - DME volume unbelievably loud. Solution - Volume set to more believable level.

Problem - Friction locks cause throttle levers to stick. Solution - That's what they are there for!

Problem - IFF inoperative. Solution - IFF always inoperative in OFF mode.

Problem - Suspected crack in windscreen. Solution - Suspect you're right.

Problem - Number 3 engine missing. Solution - Engine found on right wing after brief search.

Problem - Aircraft handles funny. Solution - Aircraft warned to "Straighten up, Fly Right, and Be Serious."

Problem - Target radar hums. Solution - Reprogrammed target radar with words

Amy, I couldn't believe when I saw the post. We all had some good laughs together. I enjoyed our song fests and reminiscing about the "good old days" He gave us all a lot of laughs. It is odd you can feel so badly about someone's passing you never met. This hurts a lot of us. I hope you don't mind if I post this in his memory. We exchanged a lot of these.

I know I saw your post about this over on FB and you said you would let everyone here know.

He was a delightful person when I read his post here on WU. He will be missed by all those who love him.

RIP Squawk

Squawk was a good guy. Alway had a sense of humor no matter what. He also served his country well as a pilot of Navy antisubmarine aircraft in his younger days.

He will be missed.
