I helped a couple of guys load a short upright piano into a Cherkee 6-300 once. That was a tight fit !! At least the Piper had a rear cargo door.
Which one do you suppose has the most endurance. The pilot or the fuel tank ??

Confuscious say, " Never drink lots of liquids before long flights ! " Especially coffee or soft drinks !!
My dad told me they had a relief tube to use on his PBY while out on long flights, searching the South Pacific for the bad guys.
I will hold the next thought. :wink:

We had relief tubes in our Beavers, I used to tell some select passengers that they were to speak to the pilot thru.

I've strapped in some real characters. The relief tubes were stowed midway up the side of the rear cabin and more that a few believed me when I told them they were voice activated speaking tubes.

You might be onto something here, Joel.
Your retirement.
Right a book.
The Beaver Flight Diary.
( pass #1) Hello. Hello. Capton, are you there ?
( pass #2) Blow in it. It might be stopped up.
( pass #1) Puff! Puff! Na !! I don't think he is listening. Phew ! When is the last time you took a bath ?

Morning coffee sometimes has this effect on me. I'll shut up !! :wink:
