Crazy Cat Man
You know that some genius in government came up with that idea. Why do it the easy and SAFER way?Had an incident, back in the day when working at McDonnell Douglass. Some genius put Argon bottles in the Nitrogen service cart... When i pre-opped the cart, to service the Nitrogen accumulators on a DC-9, I found the Argon bottles, they were nearly empty....Had some engineers scratching their heads over that one. Found out that Argon is a very heavy gas. We ended up purging the whole line of DC-9's and re servicing with Nitrogen (tires too!) because there was no way to know what that cart had been used on. Then we had the Argon moved to the weld shop. I never did understand why the powers that be, changed the markings on the bottles so they all look alike back in the 1990's. Before that they had different colored bands, now all inert gasses have the same grey bottle? If that tag gets lost, who knows what's in there?
