I had a really good relief & he told me on crew change that if I closed the air valves to the starters on the Caterpillar C-280’s the engines would shut down. I thought that hard to believe but I didn’t argue with him nor did I call him an idiot after he left.[/QUOTE]
This is different because this is one engineer passing on important information to another engineer about something they had discovered on crew change. In my case, this was just some idiot talking out if his ass on the fly and trying to sound smart.
I wonder if that is the case for all c280’s…or just that one due to something else being tied into it
after the air valve?
