It had been a long winter tour in Hall Beach. It was dark, the 22's were unusually cantankerous and my 4 weeks were over! Jake Baaker was a welcome sight when he wheeled up in old NAB and popped open the cargo door. I yelled up to him " Get me out of here Jake!".

He smiled and gave me thumbs up. Half an hour later he lit up the old 37, Shirley Doyle had made me a "cafe cognac" I strapped in, in the back and we were gone to YFB, and YUL. Jake greased her on in YFB, we offloaded a few pax and took on some fuel, a bit of freight and a bunch more pax, and the old JT8D's came to life again and we were gone!

Well almost! We taxied down to toward the end of the runway and turned around and taxied back to the terminal. I was summoned to the pointy end of the airplane where Jake met me and said, "We have a flat nose oleo!" By now it was late and all the ND ground personnel had scattered, no one answered the radio and cell phones had not been invented. I said "I know we have nitrogen in the garage to service stuff like this, I'll go have a look". Well as you all remember "B" and "H" were handicapped, as they had no airstairs. read more120t
